Time to make a chuck for the lathe. Old turners would say a chuck is a luxury and not a necessity , but luxury or not, its always nice to have one if you are going to do some bowl turning or so!
Many people would consider it a bad idea to spin heavy objects on 1000+ rpms on a homemade wooden chuck, but still, I 'm gonna give it a try! It's all about the makes! " Handmade bowls, on the handmade lathe using the handmade chuck and gouges". Well just picture that for a moment! Althought, I 'm gonna start slow I promise.....!
You' re gonna need:
-Some 20mm plywood
-A threaded rod along with some nuts (8mm worked for me)
-Woodglue and some screws.
Let's have a look at the vid of the make above.
