|The others, while not perfect, look pretty good to my eye.|
Incidentally, I am extremely happy with how my center markers turned out. I drilled all the way through each stick, and inserted a 4mm bamboo skewer.
|I think these bamboo dots look great.|
|Insert coming out.|
|Oversized insert stock.|
|I split it to rough width with a chisel.|
|A bit oversize.|
|Shooting the ends of the insert to sneak up on a perfect fit.|
|It has the potential to be nice and tight.|
And, cross my fingers that it doesn't move again. I think the C-clamp is what caused the problem before: I probably used too much clamping pressure.
|Hopefully this clamping strategy will get it to look nice and tight.|
