The Wonder of Wood

Turning Timber into Treasure

This was an interesting project.

A gentleman contacted me and asked if I could make some parts for a Windsor chair. It has three broken spindles and the four legs had been shortened and where in poor condition, they also did not match very well.

I turned up the parts using a recently made centre steady. I returned them to the client and he was very happy with them. I asked him to send me a picture of the completed opus. I think you will agree that it is a very good restoration project.

Remember that I am available for commissions of all types of turning.

An interesting project for a furniture maker. He was reproducing a set of Library Steps as a copy of an existing set that had fallen into disrepair. He did not do woodturning so he asked me to make the spindle. As it was nearly 1M long it gave me the opportunity to try out my bed extention and cenrtre steady.
