Decided to make a couple of Salt and Pepper pinch pots but with lids.

The main body has two turned recesses out of Sapele, the lids are American Black Walnut the black knob is African Blackwood and the white is Acrylic as I did not have any real white wood to hand. The base is finished with Mineral oil and the outside then waxed and buffed once dry. the lids got a coat of sander sealer then waxed before the knobs are fitted.

Nice little item which would make nice Christmas presents and also use up all the scraps.
So did you turn out the pot recesses or just use a pillar drill?
If turned did you hot melt glue to a waste block or something else?
And if you used a pillar drill how did you remove the fortsner bit marks at the bottom?
Cheers

They are turned out I held it in a small doughnut chuck which makes moving it from one to the other easy just marked the centre so that I could use the tailstock to centre each side.

Nice one: a proper job. A Doughnut chuck is on my ‘really want but too lazy to make’ list. Not very easy to buy in the uk either- did you make yours? Piccy?

The only pictures I have are these while making another project. I have three front plates all with different sized centre holes. it is only a small one but can be made any size to suit your needs and lathe.
Remember to keep the lathe speed down especially with smaller lathes if it vibrates too much then do not attempt it.

Many thanks. I really think I need to make one now!
I think I’ll start a separate Donut chuck thread to gather some design ideas.
