I even turned the legs on the lathe (which was, hands down, the funnest part of this whole thing...and since I loved making this, that is saying something) They are not all quite the same, but considering it was my first time and I mostly eyeballed the curves, I think they are pretty close. I was a little worried when I decided to use a lathe for this, because I think most turned legs tend to look very traditional or very country and neither of those fit my style. These, I think, lean toward traditional, but the curve is simple enough that it's not quite. Next semester, I want to try to make some candlesticks...and a lamp base...and...(can you tell I have lathe on the brain?...anyone out there want to contribute to my lathe fund so I can have one to play with in my own shop? This is the one I want :)
So, there is some of what I've been up to while I've been not blogging. I'm going to be on Christmas break now, though, so maybe I can get caught up with some projects I managed to squeeze in these last few months.
