I found myself in need of a center finder...So… I am contemplating my bench build. One of the things I'd like to do is build an end vise with a homemade wooden screw. There are circular blanks (for baseball bats) at my local Woodcraft, but I want to mount them on the lathe as centered as possible to decrease the amount of trueing up I need to do. Thus, a center finder. Scraps of mahogany for the sides, a walnut box top I had screwed up and put in the small bits bin for the 45 degree scribe. I was bored with the shape and started shaping the arm that became the head and body. That led to the wings being shaped. Note – I glued up the wings on the wrong side of the square… if you look the through dowels are much cleaner on the bottom. All hand tool build except the dowel holes…. my bit and brace doesn't hold drill bits tight. I really enjoyed using my rasps for the shaping. I needed a V-groove and a couple of other carving tools for the wings, but most of the work was with a rasp.
