I have a client that wants a farm table with 4” thick turned legs but my mini lathe won’t handle the length. Any one know of any mill work websites where I can order table legs to te specs I need?

Most table legs are 28” to 32” usually. Turn it in sections, turn a 16 inch top of leg then drill center hole and use dowel, do that to both sections making sure they join at a bead or seam. PS. I mean use a large dowel about 1 or 1 1/2” dia. and 3 inch depth.
