Mick, your neighbor must do some incredible stone work for you to part with 40 yo cherry!  Can you provide a pic of Alison’s table and a link to the FWW Beckvoort’s to give us an idea of what’s to come? Looking forward to following this project.

How long of a dowel can you reasonably make that way Mick?

Only about an inch or so, maybe 1 ½". You're limited by the cutter length and also the unsupported end would start to whip, I imagine.

It's great for making dowels for pinning since you can use any species you choose. It's how I make ebony pins. Great way to use up scrap, too!

That's cool! If you and Paul keep posting about your pantorouters it's going to motivate me to buy one.

I have to ask COPD? I'm going to need that defined cause i don't understand how chronic obstructive pulmonary disease fits in here.... Other than the results from too much saw dust?

A bug is not allowing b this quote to work properly. I am not familiar with this reference. E-OCD maybe?

Hahaha! I believe the vaccination was on my mind when I wrote that.

I drove to Amarillo this morning to get my first shot. 4 hours each way, but relieved. Halfway back I got the text from the state of NM with my code to make a vaccination appointment that I've waited 2 months to get before in person classes start back up.

Always works that way. Always.

Hopefully you will be able to get your second shot in NM? 

I think I could, but I don't know if I could get it when it's due. Anyway, Alison's sister and her family are all in Amarillo, so I'll go over and spend a night with them, have some good Tex-Mex, maybe a Whataburger for breakfast the next day before heading back.

The use of a transfer punch is Brilliant!!!   I should have thought of that myself, but never have.

For those that don't know what a transfer punch is, it fits tightly in a hole of a specific size, and has a little tit that sticks out to mark the center, so you can drill parts to mate perfectly.  They come in sets.  I have a couple of sets that I use for metal work, but never ever thought about using one for simple drawbore marking.  I will be from now on!!!

Could you use a brad point drill bit?

Wow, almost forgot I had this journal going. Classes finish up for the semester this week, so I should be able to get back to it soon.

The only issue with brad points is that sometimes the spur isn't centered well, but yes, many people do just that.

I second the off center nature of the brad point.  But you could use that to accentuate the draw bore offset.
