I built this using the Rockler plans from red oak. I did not relieve the ears as specified since I did not trust my carving skills. I used Rockler's "stainable" wood filler, I should have mixed sawdust and glue. I learned a lot and used it as an excuse to buy a lot of tools.
"Rockler is my only source for fine tools and woodworking supplies. Every item I have purchased from them has been better than I anyone would expect from other suppliers. Thanks to them I have begun the wonderful and rewarding journey into turning, from my lathe to all my turning tools and gadgets, I am a fan. Rockler has enhanced my knowledge and expanded my enthusiasm. They are customer oriented. " -
