Saving money is an inborn trait with many people.

Its construction will require a piece of 6 x 6 stock 8" long. A piece of clear
fir such as might be obtained in any lumberyard will be suitable. Pine or
any of the cabinet hardwoods, if they are obtainable, will be found easier to
work. The end of the stock should be sawn square. A faceplate is fastened to one end with three or four wood screws; then the faceplate with the stock attached is run on the spindle at the headstock of the lathe. The dead center is brought up to the other end of the stock to supply added support for most, of the turning.
