Replication in a Cold Dark Shop –
 
Looks like it’s going to be another cold rainy day in Lilburn …
 

 
... well, not too cold. It’s 50° in the shop and I thought, Replication in a Moderately Cool Dark Shop, was too wordy a title.
 

 
But at any rate, with one leg complete it was time to start making copies. I decided to spend a bit more time rounding out the next leg on the bench, which I hoped would make less work at the lathe.
 

 
But wait! Looks like I was a bit over zealous in cutting in the corners the first go round … I’m off by at least 1/2 inch … better fix that!
 

 
I carefully remove the little wedge with a dovetail saw and chisel.
 

 
The extra rounding out on the bench made for a lot less work achieving a cylinder on the lathe!
 

 
Once I had a relatively smooth cylinder I used a pencil to mark off the start and stop of the different features in the original turning.
 

 
Then, while pumping the lathe I carried these marks all the way around the blank. Thank the Good Lord for eye, hand, foot coordination!
 

 
Having fashioned a shelf of sorts with which to place the original turning for easy reference …
 

 
I cut in the different diameters, leaving enough material to work in the features.
 

 
A little more off the corners and the ball feet of these two legs should match nicely.
 

 
After following the lines and paying attention to the first turning … I had yet another leg completed.
Like I said before … the advantage of having a dark shop, is that it hides the inconsistencies …
 

 
Next up … the finished legs and frame members! Thanks for looking … all comments and/or questions welcomed … more to come!

Amazing how many designs are changed in progress to eradicate mistakes, thats where most of my time is spent – redesigning to work around my faux pas.
Nice hand tool work.

How very true … that’s why I wait until the project is complete before making plans! LOL!
