Very brief instructions. I use double stick tape and tape the pendant blank to a 1 1/2" by 2" scrap of wood. I remove 2 jaws from my chuck so I can grab that piece of wood by the long sides. Now I turn the pendant round. then I loosen the jaws of the chuck and move the block up or down so that I can turn either lines in the pendant off center or turn a hole off center. You can also tilt the wood out in the jaws to make the pendant tapered from top to bottom. Quite often I do both. tilt it out and up and make a slice across the wood. Them move it down and out the same amount and cut another slice across the wood on the opposite side. Unlimited possibilities.
I also built a copy of the Ruth Niles pendant jig that adds even more possibilities.
