My Turning Process for Stoppers *PIC*

Ruth Niles
>As requested, I'm going to try to post a few pictures. Excuse the poor quality and the messy background, I didn't clean off my work area just took pictures. This stopper took about 10 min. to complete, not buffed, just oiled.

After rounding a blank, I drill a 3/8" hole then make a 1/16" indent on the bottom (1st pic). This indent allows the stopper to be "hugged" by the wood and more glue surface (a few drops in hole and at base of tenon). *note: this eliminates the need for ridges on the tenon as suggested here.
