Post: RE: Build Thread for my Brother's Urn

A chuck on a live center in a tailstock comes in handy for holding a lot of unusual shapes, doesn't it? I'm using one right now but it's not (and won't be) nearly as pretty as yours.

In 2015, my new wife brought a catalog with a page turned down to me and showed me the segmented maple vase she wanted. I thought the $1,800 price was unreasonable so she went away. A month later, s...
