I have a friend that is in his 80's and use to work at the telephone company. He collects telephones. I used one of his. He also has turned one. It is true to size.

Would you mind sharing the sizes/drawings with the rest of us who might like to turn one ourselves?

Sure Can.  I'll even share all my little tricks I learned while turning it. Because there were a few parts I had to turn more than once.  However, I won't have my telephone back to measure the parts until Oct 10th, because I had a friend from our club pick it up from the Fair. I was out of town. Our next club meeting is on the 9th and he'll bring it back to me then.  Will that work for you?

Works for me.  I want to take a shot at this also, if I can ever find the time.

For those wanting the directions and sizes for the Walnut Vintage Candlestick Telephone, I've typed up the directions in Microsoft word for each piece. It's almost a full page and took several photos of each piece for details. I can only put 4 photos up and it will not let me attach the file for the directions. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get this to you guys?

MS Word can save a file as a .pdf.  Then it can be emailed to Ron to include in the TPT area.

If you can't make a PDF you can send me the MS.doc file and I can take it from there.

Thanks Kathy
