Actually cheaper to buy ready made spindles than learning to turn or buy a lathe, & all the tools needed. Of course need dry wood too! Many woodturners including my self find if daunting to get 4 legs exactly the same. Turned lot of spindles for porches & stairs on a copying lathe and hated it. Enjoyed split turnings for period furniture lot better and easier.

Don’t be surprised if your turner friend says no!

My last big furniture project was turning stools for my brothers & sisters.
