A friend wanted a table to set her keyboard on and needed it to be mobile.

Nicely done!
The turned legs look great.

New to turning. How do you turn the legs so they are a consistent size and shape?

Calipers, and VERY frequent checks. After a while your eye get’s better, and you can work a little between checks, but anyone saying they just turn till it looks good, and then they check is either a deity, or their work isn’t that exact, which if you ever go to measuring a lot of turned work you may find discrepancies. If small it’s hard for the human eye to take in that many exact comparisons, so as long as they look consistent, they need not be exact.

Just turn, enjoy, and relax. If you stress about it, you will have a harder time getting it done. Speed and exactness only come with pure luck, or experience. If you really get hung up on tolerances, buy a lathe duplicator, but those even turn out some differences, slight but there nonetheless.

Table look nice, and appears to meet and probably exceed design spec. Good job.

I also cut out a form from a sturdy poster board and use as a reference. Then as therealsteven said…calipers and frequent checks.
