I want to make a reproduction of the eames wooden stool (see attached) and wanted to get some pointers from someone regarding how to mount and hold the large piece of wood on my jet lathe. I have the middle section turned, but need advice on how to hold the top and bottom when I glue them on and how to turn the concave top after it’s mounted on my lathe. I have it mounted between centers right now, but curious if I should end mount it using a face place (bottom)? How secure will this be?
Dimensions are 15 inches tall, top is 13 inches wide, bottom is 11 inch wide.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
