Our Last Meeting
David Bartlett shared techniques and skills for turning faceplate turning by turning the base plate for a wall hanging. On that base, he will mount a bowl cut in half to create a shelf like compartment to display flowers or other items as desired. He started out by preparing a glue block onto which he mounted the block of wood to become the base plate. After truing up the block of wood, he cut a recess for mounting it onto a chuck in expansion mode in order to turn the face side. This back side also received a groove cut about midway between the center and the edge which will serve as the hanging point onto the wall. He turned the plate around on the chuck and turned the front side. He then show how to line up and mount the half bowl to complete the wall hanging.
Thank you Dave for sharing with us.
