Cone Splice Addendum

After the cone splice post, I received some email. One reader suggested I drill a hole with the cone bit into a block of wood and then saw it exactly in half. I would then have a perfect form to test fit my cones as I turn them. That was a forehead slapper. I don’t know why I didn’t do that right away. It definitely makes the repair quicker. You could even stick some PSA sandpaper down into the block to do the final shaping if you wanted.

The other thing I forgot to mention is double cone splicing. This is a beautiful solution to legs and stretchers that snap in half.

Returned to perfect alignment
Any other ideas expanding on this method of repair?
