This chair I got at a yard sale for five dollars. It looked nice, and it would be a good repair project for me. I first turned the chair spindles. One of the spindles was fine, but the other two were in rough shape. It was hard finding a stain that would match the first spindle, but I found the right stain, just took a while to find the right stain. It’s a really nice chair, and it turned out really nice.
I know I already posted this in the forums, just wanted to post it in the projects so more people can see it.
Thanks,
AJ

Hey, what kind of Lathe did you use to spin the spindles? I assume you used a Lathe that’s on your workbench, but I can’t see it in your shop tour. Did you use easy wood tools to make the spindles? I would like to see a picture of this lathe you have.

Thanks Joe, I try to do my best at projects. It sometimes doesn’t work, but you learn from you mistakes.
