This article shows you how to make a threaded wood chuck. Using these wood chucks allows you to remove the work from the lathe for drying or other finishing work with the ability to remount the work at the same center on the original or another lathe. The sacrificial face can also be configured as a jam chuck, glue chuck or used to hold an off-center piece.
