Capitals

The first practical thing I have done since taking to turning. I have a picket fence with some plain fence posts. Capitals were the answer to dress the fence up a little After some discussion with swmbo I came up with a design to suit our place in Port Elliot, South Australia.

I have used the lessons learned in class and created a template after making a prototype. Each capital is 170mm high and 85mm at the base. I made ten so it was good practice. Repetition really does help with tapers and spheres.

The photos tell the rest of the story.

The pictures show the blanks being prepared and final photo is the collection of Capitals.
