C and D). Tilt your drill press table to 5°, put a ⅜" bit in the chuck and drill the holes (Photo 4). Use a fence to ensure that all the holes are the same distance from the tapered edges of the legs. Reset the fence for the front bottom rail holes. Temporarily clamp together the legs and all four rails. Using a hand drill and the same ⅜" bit, extend each bolthole into its corresponding rail (Photo 5). Disassemble the base. If necessary, drill these holes deeper. Lay out the holes for the copper tubes that will hold the nuts directly from the holes you just drilled.

Here’s a tip: A jam fit can be tightened by adding a layer of tissue paper around the tenon or by wetting the tenon to slightly swell the wood. WASTE BLOCK Jam chucking is frequently used in box-making. A tenon is turned on the base of the box to snugly fit the hollowed top. Jamming the top onto the tenon allows final shaping of the box’s entire outside profile. Jam chucking into a recess is another option. Here, the tenon on the box’s base (now shaped and hollowed to form a rim) snugly fits into a recess turned in the waste block, so the box’s bottom can be completed.

Mounting holes along the three lines for the bolts that will hold the ring (Photo 3). Start at the outermost ring you cut earlier and space the holes 1" apart down to the 4" mark. Use a new or very sharp bit, make sure it’s perpendicular to the drill press table and install a flat sacrificial board underneath to eliminate tearout. Make the Rings Attach a hardboard disc to the base to create a template for making the rings (Photo 4). Mark this disc to index its “key” location, as well as its outside face (when mounted on the base).
