I've been turning for a while, but I still feel intimidated by the machine. I hope this book will give me more assurance.
Great idea. Where can I find those metal miter bars?
I successfully made a couple of these. I was also worried about the tenon fitting properly into the socket. I was wondering how I would make them so the handle would not slip off. I asked a seasoned woodworking teacher and he told me that I had to heat the tenon before the assembly. Once the wood cools down, it expands and stays stuck forever. I use a propane torch to heat the tenon but I suppose a could have use a heat gun or a hair dryer.
