Turning the Corner

Recently, I blogged briefly about how I’d been approached by someone local to turn a replacement chair ‘strut’ to replace the broken one as shown in this photo. I honestly cannot remember the last time I used my lathe, prior to this small job so, I was a little concerned that I might be out of practice…

In truth though, I approached each stage with great care and it really didn’t take very long at all. I’m not even close to the speed of a professional woodturner and, I’m sure there are some stages to which a more seasoned ‘turner may have approached things in a different manner. I got the job done, it’s a pretty close resemblance to the original and the cusomter is very pleased…

In fact, he’s so pleased, he’s e-mailed me tonight to ask if I can make another to replace the other one that he’s just broken! 😉
