Thank you Steve, that is a promising approach. The pieces are milled to fit all legs, with varying tolerance between each piece. There are in fact four styles of cap per each leg, with eight individual pieces of similar design per each leg, four pieces of two styles at the base, and four more further up the leg.
I'll move this posting over to the turning forum. In interim, do you have referral(s) to forum member(s) who may be interested in the work?
As a side note to this project; It is interesting to me that B&G obviously determined (for an as yet unknown amount of time)* that during production adding caps to squared legs in order to produce the turned look was advantageous over the option of turning each leg as one unit.
We all know turning takes time, however, one could imagine that the process of tasking laborers with gluing eight caps per leg, along with added time for shaping the separate styles of caps, and time for cleaning up the glued areas prior to finishing a single piece would take much more time. This thought is especially confounding when one considers the level of lathe automation B&G had at their disposal Cr. 1905. Having been in business 39 years at that point, financially speaking they were doing quite well. (estb. 1866, dba Berkey & Co.). For some reason which is unclear to me, it would appear that B&G exe's deemed the cap-gluing process the more productive option. Any thoughts (or factual knowledge) out there on this?
