Hello fellow jocks,
I am making a vessle for my father for his 60th birthday, he is sick with cancer and this gift is very important to me. I’ve only made a couple segmented turnings so I’m still learning how and in what order to do things. At this point (as you can see in the pictures) The whole thing is done, including the first coat of finish, exsept the bottom. I want to put in a floating bottom, but my problem is, how do i turn the bottom of the piece noow that it is the only side holding on the lathe. I back my self into a corner.
Like I said this gift means a lot to me and I need it to be as perfect as i can get it. Thank you in advance for all the tips.
PS – Does anyone have some advise on glueing up stacks of rings and getting the, dead on center? They keep moving and end up off and its driving me crazy!!! lol
