but I'm curious how this stem/shank ring fit is made.
1. is the small circular inset for the stem (not the mortice bit, but the larger circular inset) cut with a forster bit? or is this done with a cutting tool on the lathe?
2. is the mortice drilled after the decorative ring is epoxied on? and is that just a faced piece against a faced shank or is there some king of male-female connection behind the decoration?


1. It can be cut with either, but a lathe tool will make a nicer cut.
2. Mortise is drill before usually. There is a tenon cut on the briar to hold the decoration. You can see the sliver of briar in the pic.

Wow, George. That was positively mind-numbing.


I know. Cool trick, isn't it? I just visualize a task in shop terms, then start typing while imagining myself doing the task in a room filled with people arguing about politics while 130 dB GangstaWrapMusic plays in the background. Instant neural novocaine. Been known to stun elephants, in fact. :D
