This one has a little story. A local sculptor who works in the School of American Crafts at RIT made a table, and sent it to a gallery in NYC on speculation. It sold within two days. the day after it sold, a customer came in and wanted to buy it. When they learned that it was already sold, they wanted the artist to make another one for them. He agreed, but had made the first one by eye and hadn't made any drawings either before or after the piece was made, figuring it would be a one-off. The gallery took a few dimensions, but one of the turned legs was quite a large turning that had been stressful and difficult to turn the first time, and he came to me to see if I could turn the leg for him. He had a picture of the leg and a couple of dimensions. We scanned the picture, traced over it and made some adjustments to the form that had bee distorted by the camera angle. He prepared the blank, and I turned it for him. One trick part is that he had drilled the hole in one end to connect the top section of the leg, so I had to mount the piece on that hole to make sure the top leg section would be centered on the bottom piece. It came out great and he was very grateful for not having to turn this piece by hand. The diamter of this piece is 14".
