While working on The Wood Whilperer Guild tilt top table project I realized that my lathe bed was a couple inches short. I generally do not do long spindle work so I didn’t want to fork out $250 for the extension and leg. I used some oak scraps, bought 50 cents worth of nuts, bolts and washers, and made a temporary one. I filmed a video of it here. Lathe bed video. The jig didn’t take much time at all and I was able to turn my cherry column with no problem.
