Turned legs *PIC*

>I haven't had much time to turn lately. I've been doing various commission jobs and of course working. Had to do grip and grin photos of 700 graduates this morning so I was due some time in the shop this afternoon.

My dad wanted me to make the legs for his next project. they are 36" long and 1 1/2" square. This made them pretty tough to turn do to vibration. I built a bowl steady but haven't built a spindle steady yet. I probably should have used it but I was able to dampen the vibration down to a chatter that was easily sanded out with 150.
