It’s times like this I wish I had a duplicator.

Put those on 3 different chairs and I bet no one will notice. I had a chair maker who made one chair with a completely different leg than the other 3 that were on the chair and no one ever noticed unless it was pointed out to them. Small turning differences is what makes it handmade. I held a spindle to be copied just behind the one I turning to copy and that helped a lot. After you do a few they will all look alike.

It is a challenge, you did good!

Shopnotes featured a duplicator and plans to make it.
