I posted a blog about some chair spindles I turned for a friend. These were to replace the broken spindles on a chair he was working on.

Finally, he sent me pictures this morning. Apparently he has put the chair together, but plans on staining and finishing them sometime…..
Even though they are not stained it is still nice to see that the work was used and actually doesn’t look too bad.

The spindles sure look nice.

If they can match the finish, I don’t believe anyone would be able to tell they were not original.

dustbunny,
The only problem I see is that they all look like clones. I can’t tell the difference from one to another!

Lisa, Great job on those spindles. I had to laugh @ woodbutcher’s comment (that’s because I got to meet him this past week-end and we had a great time talking woodworking. He has that sense of humor that keeps you on your toes). Anyway, when they get your spindles stained and finished, you’ll never know they where replaced. Well done.

Nice work on the spindles. It is always nice to preserve a nice wooden piece.

Nice work Lisa. As Ellen says, it is nice to preserve nice pieces, and that chair looks rather unique and well worth saving.

nice work with duplicating making 1 spindle is hard enough but to make 4 all the same size is a lot of work
