Sure, Rasmus, go ahead.  I have noticed in my website stats I have been getting a fair number of hits from translation sites like Babelfish but I don't know how well they do at translating.  It would be far better for someone that acutally understands the language to do the translating.  If you have only been turning for 6 months then you will also have different perspective on what is important to mention.  After almost 20 years of turning I am sure that I take some things for granted that really should be pointed out.

Take care
Bob

I've done the 4 legged version, but never the triangle.  I'll have to add this to my idea database.  Just gotta watch those fingers, (DAMHIKT) cause you end up turning a ghost image at the ends.  I agree Bob, handsanding on the inside of the legs is a must.

Hi, Craig:
Other than only getting half as many out of the same length of stock, I can't think of any problem with doing it that way if you can jig a way to hold them while cutting.  It would certainly cut down on the splintering issue.

Take care
Bob


What about attaching (hot melt glue/double sided tape) waste blocks to the sides and then turning?

Hi:
A lot of people do square turnings that way, so it should work fine for these too.  I have never tried it myself.
