My brother is rebuilding his gazebo at the river cabin and he needs somebody with the capability of turning a finial on the end of 1-1/4 dia x approx 30 inches long cypress dowels. We molded the dowels on our molders and he just needs the finial turned. We need to find someone in the southeast to do 20 or 30 efficiently. It may be possible to just drill a hole in the end and just turn a finial to fit the hole. We use to know of a custom turning operation called Patrick’s Woodturning. I believe it was in Barnesville, Georgia. However I couldn’t find his web site. Do any of you know of anyone who has a custom turning operation in the southeast that could do this job?
