This is the latest project that I intend to produce and sell. It takes time and patience to get the right look. I built this a while ago when I got a new machine and with the write dimensions and selecting the write wood (which happens to be mahogany) it came out super. I just love this type of furniture. I’m not happy with the pictures but I plan to add more soon.

Hi Art,
Great good work! I’m impressed for sure. Your mahogany looks like “Genuine” as in Honduras Mahogany (?). If it is I suppose you’ve gotten a taste of the super fine dust, what we used to call the ‘Red Death’ when doing a large run of it.
By the way,I’ve just started here on LJ, and there are a couple of glimpses of my Hapfo in the shop section.
I’ve not called you as requested due to the fact that my wife de-laminated a little when she heard I was thinking of laying wood turning down. She said I’m not ready for back pedaling, too much fun stuff to do. I think she is right.
Best,
Stephen

Hi Art,
Looking at your ‘Gothic’ table…I was wondering if the legacy allows for both left and right hand leads. One of the neatest things I can tell my customers is the the bedposts (furniture legs, stair ballusters and newells or whatever) will be correctly left and right. ?
Curious, Stephen

Steve—yes you can spiral to the left or the right. On some ballisters i did for one of our jobs i only spiraled them (not thinking ahead of time) with the cutter cutting against the grain. what a pain in the neck it was sanding two hundred turnings. they were rough and by the time i was done sanding them my fingers were starting to bleed.the wood was poplar.The next time i’ll know better.—but it is very nice to be able to spiral in both directions.—What i do is turn on our old manual hapfo lathe and then put the turning in the legacy and do the spiral. the lathe takes 5 to 10 minutes and the legacy takes 5 minutes to spiral.a total of 12 to 15 minutes. It of coarse depends on the detail involved.
