I created this blog to share my passion for woodturning. It includes articles I have written, links to YouTube videos of my demonstrations, demonstration handouts and links to other useful woodturning information.
I will add photos again when Google fixes their broken slideshow gadget.

Using a Beall Tap to Make Wood Face Plates or Threaded Glue Blocks
In this video I show how easy it is to make wooden face plates using the Beall Tap. This tap is relatively inexpensive and is a great alternative to accumulating metal face plates. I use them for lathe accessories like vacuum chucks and frequently use them for making boxes. They are reusable and can last a very long time. You can buy one for 1 1/4" and 1" at most of the turning vendors. It is undoubtedly the least expensive tap out there for these common sizes.
