One of my customers needed 4 posts to replace the rotted ones on they’re old house. They were over 8 ft. long so I had to add extension rails on my Legacy mill to accomidate the length. I haven’t shared a project in a while so here ya go.

Great job on the duplication of the posts, came out fantastic. The photographs are pretty good, showing the end result if your work, but I’d like to see this setup in action, if you have the ability to make a video that is.
Thanks for showing.

I’m all kinds of intrigued. The mill is awesome, as is your work on the turned posts. Would love to see it in action.

Also… A manhole cover in your shop floor? It definitely looks cool, but I’m dying to know its purpose.
