15-Minute Sand Timer To prepare the top and bottom, cut two pieces of hard maple ½' thick with a diameter of 3'.Then glue a waste block on to one side.This allows the piece to be grabbed by the chuck.
To mount the waste block, sand a flat surface on the waste block and a flat surface on the maple.Then apply some 'Cynoacrylite' gap-filling consistency glue to the waste block and spray accelerator on the maple.
Next, clamp the two together and it will be ready in seconds.The reason for using this glue is twofold.It's fast and its tensile strength is extremely strong.However, its shock resistance is very weak.
That means that you can turn, holding the piece on the waste block and when you want to release the piece, you just have to tap it with a chisel and the waste block falls off.This is very effective for turning small pieces, such as the spindles in this project.
Both top and bottom are done the same way.The first cut, as shown in photo #1 below, is called the outside cut.This brings it true.Cut it down until it is approximately 2 ⅞'.Remember, you...
