I get a lot of miscellaneous reproduction/duplication jobs, and this one was one that was "short and sweet", yet interesting. A furniture refinisher contacted me about an ornate antique bed frame that had some finials lost in a move. I wish I had some photos of the bed, cuz it's a really intense design. Anywho, these were the parts that needed replacing.
Sidenote: For as much as I love making one of a kind woodturned sculptures, there is something very satisfying about spindle turning and duplication work. I somehow feel connected to the generations of woodturners that have come before me, especially given the rich woodworking history here in Grand Rapids, MI.
