Two walnut hubs.
One of them is threaded…
one of them is not.
The one that isn’t has a larger diameter hole drilled so the threaded dowel will pass down through it.
It’s the one in the back without the dovetail sockets.
These will be glued and doweled together after they’re rounded and strengthen the sliding dovetail joinery.
With the lower hub drilled, I made a template and shaped the two hubs.
They could have been left square, but I decided to round them over and scratch some beads into them;
I wanted to give them an industrial feel and the beads as you’ll see, fit the bill.
Once the beads were complete, I pre-finished the parts and get ready for the glue-up.
The two lower walnut hubs are glued and doweled together making a much stronger hub system.
The lower frame will be glued up next time…no videos for that, but I’ll share some recovered images and text.
Here’s a video showing the above steps~
