Material: Mahogany, birch, cherry, oak, or maple
This piece of work (Fig. 63) is made of two parts; the upright being turned between centers and the base on the screw chuck.
In turning the beads on the upright, care should be taken while using the chisel, so that it will not slip. Roll the chisel to follow the curves with a full swing. In cutting beads, it might be well for the pupil to practice on a waste piece; some of the miscellaneous exercises given at the end of this manual could be selected for practice.
The base is cut plankwise of the stock in the same manner that the base in Exercise V is cut. The hole in the top is turned after the upright is fastened into the base.
An ebony, or any of the dark stains, is peculiarly appropriate for this piece of work.
