When you don’t have a 4’ lathe!
Another short slide show video of me building some columns for a wall unit that I built a long time ago.

Very creative. I’m starting to think you might be a pretty decent woodworker.

Well the finished product is certainly far from redneck.

LeeRoy, that’s top end work on both videos. Looks like you must have a local lock on higher end commercial for showrooms, and such.

I agree not seeing any redneck, but rednecks are from tater bags dyed red, as the Irish immigrants came to our country, carrying everything they owned in those bags. Hard working sons of a ,,,,,,, all of them. I have a hard time finding that anything but admirable.

Thanks Steve,
I did commercial work for about 10 years. (Store Fronts – Displays – Cash Counters)
I had several contractors and retail store owners that used me exclusively.
I always had a new store or remodel going on.

Thanks Brian, glad you could pick something up.

Thanks CW,
As I’m sure you know, sometimes you just have to figure a way.
I don’t know about a patent though, that’s pretty much a 1 time throw away jig.

That…right there.
Thats how I ‘grew up’ in the stair and railing business.
The customer doesn’t want to hear, ‘But…I don’t have a 4’ lathe’.
In my case it was me quietly panicking, thinking ’WTF!? WE DON’T HAVE A 16’ LATHE’ as the boss tells the customer…SURE, no problem. We’ll be onsite Monday! :)

Hundred’s of similar scenario’s just like that have played out over the years.
