It's amature hour again. How do you attach the tennon to the Bowl blank for turning?
I spent an hour on the web trying to get a specific answer to this question. I found all sorts of casual comments like:
"Attach with cyanoacrylic." What kind? thin? thick? Which of the 3 or 4 basic types? What is a good source? How do you apply? Do you use globs and rub the 2 pieces together to smooth and thin the glue layer? Do you spread it with a spatula or piece of scrap wood?
"Attach with hot glue." What kind---(there are many!!!)? Low temp or high temp hot glue? What is a good source?
The hot glues that I have tried to use over the years have been unsatisfactory for me. They have started to thicken before I can get the two pieces together. This results in a joint that has "play." I do not need play on a woodlathe.
I learned that I am not to use soft wood or plywood for the tennon because of chucking problems. I learned that the tennon should be 1/4 to 1/3 of the blank diameter etc., but not how to attach.
I am turning with dry, store bought, hard woods.
Some time in the future, when I am more adept, I want to work with green woods. Unfortunately, the nearest woods is many miles away and if I picked up samples some man or woman in a car with a red light would probably show up to ruin the fun.
Ladies and gentlemen, please tell me what to do, with enough specifics that I can follow through.
Thanks in advance.
