Barley Twisted Table Legs

Pictured above are four barley twisted table legs turned for a customer in Florida.  They measure 3 1/2″ wide and 30 inches high.  Normally table legs are made 29 inches in high to produce a 30 inch overall high with  the table top thickness of one inch.  But my customer needed the extra inch to make a wider apron (the horizontal member that connects the legs and supports the table top).

For a table with a 30 inch height normally you would not have less than 24 inches from the apron to the floor for knee space though most would probably consider 24 inches a tight squeeze.

Pictured below is one of the latest sets of stair newels we have turned out in our shop. These are turned from 8/4 mahogany in two different sizes. The larger 5 1/2″ newel will be used foro the base of the stairs. The 3 1/2″ newels will be used for landings and balconies. It’s hard to tell but there are five pieces that are split in half which be used at terminal points of the handrail. They will be attached directly to the wall. These are , of course, over-the-post newels and will require a handrail fitting attached to the top of the newels to attach to the handrail.
