My first spindle reproduction job

I have a buddy who works for a painting company in Denver and he needed to have some custom spindles made so I told him I would take the challenge. All turned by hand not with a duplicator. I am working both sides of woodturning the production and art side.

Thanks guys and gals. The first one took a little over an hour with layout and turning by the end I think I had it down to about 1/2 hour.
