These open barley twist posts are made from alder, They are 7 1/2” square. I’ve made about 12 or 14 of these so far for a local contractor. Done on a Legacy Ornamental Mill.

Thanks for looking!

Amazing! Nice work! What does one of those cost to buy? Just curious.

Les,

Those are really hefty! They must weigh a ton! Do you do a reverse twist, too, for the other side? For what are they used? How big of a post can you lathe on that Legacy?

Thanks for sharing.

Those are so cool! I’ll bet the staircase will look awsome with them.
