Designing Spindle Work
Apr 6th, 2016 at 1:47pm
 
My designs for table pedestals, hat stands, and such are less than inspiring to put it mildly.  Can anyone point me to reference material addressing the various components (beads, fillets, etc) and how to combine effectively, efficiently, and attractively?

The book Woodturning by Klaus Pracht has many examples.

Don, many time when looking for designs, I'll do a quick image search and find some manufacturers that make the item I'm looking for . Using these profiles and shapes for reference or at least a starting point. It's also good to disse them to see why they work and how you can adapt you own.
Here are a few images from a company called Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
Nice, easy to reference photos of various styles.
Hope this helps

While many did not seem inspired, I did find some attractive examples by searching on the Internet using "turned wood pedestal images"

I'm awaiting interlibrary transfer of the Pracht book and am looking forward to browsing it.

Thanks Reed.
