Woodturning Tip of the Day

Be careful of those chuck jaws

The sharp edges of chuck jaws can be a hazard to fingers and clothing that get too close while turning. Take all chuck jaws and grind or sand the corners to a round smooth edge. It does not take long to do and it could save you from a cut or getting wrapped up in a rotating chuck. Do both sides of the jaws. At some time, you may be reversing the lathe rotation while turning. Your current lathe may not reverse but in the future, you could upgrade to one that does and you will be ready.

Featured Turning Project

Turn your own Napkin Rings and Stand
by Paul Ross

These napkin rings and stand make an attractive table piece. They also fit nicely together for easy storage when not in use.

Depending on the look you want, you can do the entire set out of one type of wood, or use two contrasting woods. Paul chose to use walnut for the rings and stem, and boxwood (from France) for the stem's cap.

This is a relatively easy project requiring mostly spindle work, with some faceplate work for the base. 

Wouldn't these napkins rings and stand look good on your Thanksgiving Day dinner table?
