After the glue is allowed to sit all night, it’s time to “square up” the blank. The tool you see in the top photo is used for this. The thin part towards the bottom is inserted into the brass tube. The thicker part is then turned in the drill and cuts the wood square to the brass tube. This is why the wood blank was cut to a 1/16” longer than the brass tube. In the photo below, you can see the cutting portion riding on the blank.

Between the two of us we have 100 years of experience in the perfecting of our trades. It would be nice if you visit here and capture us in a moment of creating something from our passions. So please share with us the trials and tribulations of creating our art.
