  • Threaded, reusable, aluminum glue hub with hardwood waste block
  • 7" diameter x 3" thick maple bowl blank with routered resin groove and center point for simple gluing
  • Wrench for loosening hub from lathe spindle
  • Once you've completed your turning, the glue hub and waste block can be reused for other projects! 
  • Finished bowl(s) not included, shown in pictures only to give an idea of what could be made from the bowl blank.

Glue Hub Features:

  • SIMPLE: Turn both inside, outside and bottom without removing and reversing project
  • EXTRA SPACE: creates more room for shaping bottom or foot as it is smaller than a 4-jaw chuck and moves project away from the headstock
  • SAVES WOOD: No need to lose wood on a tenon. Consume the waste block when parting your project off
  • LONG LIFE: Add more fine-grained hardwood to extend waste block
  • REUSABLE: Aluminum won’t crack or break over time
  • REMOVEABLE: Remove project from lathe multiple times without losing center alignment.
  • CONVENIENT: No screws or jaws. Thread hub onto lathe, glue your wood project directly to the waste block, use your tailstock to hold, and start turning once the glue dries.
  • THREADED: Threads directly onto your lathe spindle, or can be reversed and held in tail stock.
  • HOLDS SECURELY: Waste block features ½” deep milled pocket that the glue hub is glued into resulting in a more secure hold than a butt joint. No more coming loose from chuck jaws.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT: Weighs 16 oz (with waste block) vs 4-jaw chucks that weigh 4+ lbs
  • WORKS WITH RESIN: Without the waste block this can be glued or molded directly into a resin project.
  • We always recommend using tailstock support as much as possible when turning. This can be done with a live tailstock chuck and a center point.

Glue Hub Details:

  • CNC machined from 6061 aluminum
  • 1.90" outside diameter 
  • 3.5" Overall Length
  • Choose from either 1" - 8 TPI threads or 1.25" - 8 TPI

Hardwood Waste Block:

  • Arrives pre-glued to hub using clear Gorilla glue.
  • Routered from kiln dried hard maple.
  • 2.5" diameter x 1.5" long
  • Milled pocket is 0.50" deep, so your glue hub sits inside the waste block 0.50".
  • Once your original waste block becomes 1" long, we suggest that you add additional fine-grained hardwood, such as hard maple, to the waste block. This will allow you to separate your project without consuming the original waste block.

This CNC routered blank from kiln-dried hardwoods with routered design for epoxy resin will make a very unique finished hybrid bowl approximately 6.75" wide and 2.75" - 3" tall. *Images displayed are meant to illustrate the finished product; the actual wood grain and coloration may vary. It's up to you to decide what color resin to use.

About this unique blank:

  • This maple turning blank can be used to craft a beautiful hybrid bowl worthy of admiration and gifting. These segments feature wavy lines, not straight lines.
  • The routered design is a 3/8" slot x 1.75" deep and can be filled with about 8 oz of your epoxy resin-based mixture, colored to your preferred hue. This can be put into a pressure pot, although satisfactory results have been achieved without one.
  • This bowl-turning blank is crafted with only the finest hand-picked, kilned hardwoods for superior results. Achieve the best results with sharp tools when working with dry woods & epoxy resin. We suggest Acrylic/Resin tools such as this kit when turning this project. 
  • These blanks arrive to you already round, so there's no roughing!
  • The center ring has been pre-marked with a center point, providing an easy reference for tailstock centering when mounting the project.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: We do NOT recommend urethane resins. We only use and have tested epoxy resin (we use Total Boat tabletop eopxy, however there are others).
