The Computer Lab - Final Curtain Rod

When I built my loft bed, I placed it next to the window to have convenient natural lighting in the computer lab.  However, sometimes the light is overbearing and causes glare on my computer screen.  I wanted to have the option to block this out.
Where we last left off, I had completed the side curtains for the door.  I still had another set of curtains remaining, so it was time to build another curtain rod!

I found these eyelets at a garage sale.  The ones with the plastic inserts were in a package marked as "TV cable hangers".  I decided to use these, taking advantage of the plastic inserts to make my screw clearance tighter as illustrated below.

Mounting a 4-Jaw Chuck On My Lathe (Video)

I had received a 4-Jaw chuck that was going to be scrapped a while ago, but suddenly became inspired to finally mount it on my lathe after watching this video.  Also the revelation that I actually had a right-angled screwdriver that could help me disassemble the original chuck mount made it possible.
I didn't really cover the process of building the adapter in the video so here are some more detailed photos:

I started with this scrap piece.  I had to use one of the lathes at school because mine couldn't hold this large of diameter.
