I've not attempted to core anything in one piece, however, i have had request for stabilized burl in a one piecce butt. i was putting a feeler out there to see.Very interesting.
If I can ask
Actual stepped, tapered or just 2 seperate cores cut straight?
Kim that chuck is too over priced for me, in the early stage of the hobby, however the refernece point was the clueShouldn't be a problem, just make sure your work piece is nice and concentric and draw a reference line across of the blank, so you can position it exactly the same orientation when changing sides. I use a Pratt Burnerd KC15 chuck for coring, very accurate and very fast to change work piece.
Thank you Good Advice
