THE MUSIC STAND is begun. This afternoon I sawed the big slab of cherry into the basic pieces for the new music stand. I find I will have enough of this very nice, and very well seasoned wood to make two stands. I will see how the first one goes, The big challenge will be drilling a six to eight inch 3/4 inch hole down the center of what will be a 1 1/2 inch round turning . Should I drill the hole first in the 2 x 2 stock, or should I turn it round on the lathe and then try to drill the hole. And what is the best drill bit to use. I am thinking an old fashioned screw tipped auger turned very slowly, maybe with a hand brace, might be best. Any ideas you wood-workers?
