Turning finials in Chingford 13-09-16
Unlike the spindles I had no pattern to work from, I did have pictures that I took recently up a painter’s scaffold as well as the house next door.
Rule number one if you have a very long bed lathe or something very special, then sell it to someone you know and keep track of it (then you can borrow it).
One very long bed Union Jubilee Lathe. Only 5inches over bed but fine for finials up to 56 inches. This was my first lathe.
