Of coarse I'm sure I've made it sound like an easier project than I'll actually turn it into
I don't think I made it clear that I offset the hole in the pillar and just drill the existing hole
in the stock larger to except the pillar.
After making the pillar I offset it in the lathe by the amount that I want and simply drill the
hole in the pillar. This saves the stock and the pillar works very good.
This kills two birds with one stone.
