You’ll see an interesting article on this and the process for making a (complex) jig in the latest issue of ShopNotes.

Not sure where you are in NM, but there is a place in Albuquerque called Groff Lumber. They sell things like Ponderosa pine beams, and they also do the turned posts. The folks there are really nice and I am sure that they would be willing to let you come in and take a look around, and maybe even watch.

Post pics when you get around to it.
