Ok i am close to imagining how this is done but the light bulb is still flickering. I understand you can use the pins in the indexing holes and the piece will stay in place and not turn… but then how do people remove wood in order to flute a column? do i use a my mini router and remove wood? what surface do i rest my router on, the tool rest? I know part of the reason i can’t imagine this is because my lathe hasn’t arrive in the mail.

also probably a silly question but the Jet 1014VSI does NOT come with a chuck correct? anyone want to throw their suggestion out for a good chuck for this lathe? right now i just want to turn mini birdhouses (christmas decorations) and i really haven’t figured out what else i’d be interested in turning. Something low priced but not so low price that the wood is going to fly out and clock me in the forehead
