the leg was busted up too much and I could turn another one quicker than four or five times gluing all the pieces in. And will be stronger.. Piece of oak been stored in the shop for almost 20 years.. It was 3" x 3" and now after turning it down I noticed some weather cracks... Good ole oak , uck I'll probably run some 1/2 or 5/8" dowels cross those cracks.....before I put the chair back together
I was looking at some completed projects and some mentioned run times of about 10 or 12 hours. This brought up several questions: 1. How many of you guys have regular spindles vs. routers? 2. Is the spindle air cooled or water cooled? 3. Air Cooled or Water cooled, which is your recommendation? 4. If you have a router, do you run it that long at one time? 5. On a project that runs for 10 or 12 hours, do you leave the shop while it is running or do you stick around making sure nothing goes south?
I've been rolling along pretty good with spindles for Shaker stools, feeling pretty good about myself, feeling a little cocky actually. Then the powers that be will always smack ya down, just to remind you. I got a little aggressive and she dug in. got lucky with this one, it just kind of fell to the floor without fanfare or violence.
