« Part 2: More pic's Part 3 of Making of a cinderella carriage bed series Part 4: Making the frame »

Here is my 42” lath with a 42” extension bed set up with 2 48” Vaga duplicators. It is very difficult to set them up perfectly straight. It took 2 hours to set up.

Because there were 2 duplicators there was a section in the middle where we could not get with the first set up.

The turning blank was 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” x 87 3/4” long. Finished size was 3 15/16” in diameter.

We clipped the corners.

A close up of the center.

Second set up cleaning up the center.

This is showing how we step cut it all the way down.

That is one long puppy.

All cleaned up.
Sanding time.

-- Have a great day.
