This is a cool little thing that i wanted to post. I saw it in an old Fine Woodworking magazine and really wanted to try it out. it is the post for a tilt top table but the only difference is that the vase at the bottom is turned like a pineapple. I thought that it looked really cool and wanted to give it a try so i grabbed a piece of sapele and headed over to my lathe and made a little mini version. i like the look of it but i need to play around with proportions because this was just to practice the look of it. Also the pineapple itself is pretty bad. I need to sharpen up my chisels but all in all i think it came out pretty good and thought it was a cool thing worth sharing.
