Excellent job on answering my question. I do not beleive you could drill that length accurately on a lathe due to bit wander even with straight grain wood.

Gerald, I was more thinking of drilling each short segment? I agree that it would be impossible to do the whole length in one shot, the grain causes strange things to happen with the drill bit.

You can also wax the pin,if you so desire.

Thanks, you answered that question before I asked.:)

When using wood hinge pins, do you use birch, polar, oak or ??? pins. Pros/cons of one wood type over another???

These are so cool and add such a touch of craftsmanship.

They are just what ever wood dowels are made of. I have used wooden round tooth picks too, for pins.

 

The dowel I used for these was a little over 1/8" and I had to ream them out 1/64" to make a good smooth fit.

Gene, I see that, too bad, must not have sold many.
