It seems like yesterday when I was telling everyone that I hadn’t been writing because my computer had a virus. Well, can you believe it? It’s happened again. But this time, I junked the old box and bought a new one. So we’ll see how this new one works out. But I have been busy with other things as well. Here’s a little sample of one of things I’ve been working on.
This pineapple finial will sit atop one of my neighbor’s newel post, a symbol of hospitality and welcome. In upcoming weeks we’ll take a look at carving this type of finial. And, we’re going to be spending a little time laying out and turning “pad foot” legs on the springpole lathe. Then we’ll get into cabriole legs on the bandsaw (with feet turned on the lathe). They’re not as hard to make as you might think.
So stayed tuned, I’m back to work.
