Finials ARGH!!!

Joel Hunnicutt
>Those of you that turn finials for lidded pieces, do you drawn them prior to turning? I turned 5 finials for a piece before I got one to look good with the piece. I had an idea in my head of the finial I wanted, but every one I turned was the wrong shape, diameter, ect. I admit that I am a bit ham-handed with small spindles, but 5 is a bit much.
