Photo 2: I use a screw chuck for the first mounting of the pieces. It requires a 9/32" pilot hole, which you can see in Photo 1. Here I am using the fingernail shaped end of a 1/2" spindle gouge to chamfer the edges of the hole which makes it easier to get started onto the screw chuck. I just hold the gouge vertically and rotate it in the hole.
