Spindle turning improves your skills *PIC*

I turned these spindles for a friend who is making a 4 poster bed. He is doing the lower parts but just felt uncomfortable trying to do the upper spindles. These are 2 part. The top 14" will screw off to make it easier to move the bed. I did these entirely by eye so the coves and long sweeping curves may be off just a little. That is so a close eye can tell it was hand turned and not machine done. I could have made a template and made each one virtually the same but that wasn't necessary in this case.
