So, Popeye,
just so that I understand, you are suggesting that each stanction to be "turned" for lack of better terms so that the stanctions would have more of a decorative appeal rather than a straight post ? If so, I guess it never crossed my mind. Now that I know this ....... Ha making my life difficult now - Its like, now that I know - I can't just look at plain stanctions anymore --- your fault popeye --- HeHe -- just kidding.

Whew.

Well at least its keeping you on your toes. Nothing like a bit of spirit building to get the old blood flowing.
Great recovery. Think of all the scratch experience your getting from this kit.

In all seriousness , an awesome job.

Ok, so I talked myself into it (including you all too !!!). However, I have to make a decision to I want to commit to this. It takes about 5 min to make one stanction dressing them out.

WARNING: Unless you have a lot of experience, please do not do this or try this until you have done a lot of turning. The small arches are done while holding a FILE !! it gets really close to the chuck. So again, you MUST have a steady hand or the file will slip and fly into you. Also, the file is oriented in such a way that while the lathe is turning, it would bounce downward. I can't take any responsibility for any carelessness. The RPM is about 500 which is not that fast.
The only risk that you take is holding the round file by hand to make the arches. The file is just barely kissing the indentations to make the arches.

Ok, so here are the pics.

.
This first image you will see a tiny orange dot - I am using a parting tool which is 1mm in width. I am making a cut .25mm deep

This next image, the cross slide is moved to the right about 3.4mm and another cut is made at .25mm deep. I follow up both notches with a tiny round file.

Final post with stain. At this size, it is very difficult to get them exact. It take a lot of patience and not get in a hurry. At some point, I might try and produce a video on this.

Donnie, I know all too well what you are saying. Iwas turning some aluminium and instead of taking the cutter away from the spinning metal I took it towards the metal, the cutter dug in and snapped off, was thrown down, hit the guide rail and bounced up and buried itself in my face guard, which for some strange reason I had decided to wear that. If I did not have the guard it would have shattered my glasses and I would be blind in my left eye.

Forgive the digression, a simple and effective shaper for your stantions would be to shape a piece of hacksaw blade (a little laborious initially to make) and then press it against the dowel and presto. The cutter can be made with a fine grinding wheel.

Regards
Eric

Thanks Eric for the tip. I will have to try that when I have a hack saw blade handy. I went ahead and so far have made enough post for the rails. Here is a pic of how the look so far.
The only thing is that I am not sure to leave them natural or paint them black (I had tested black and looked pretty good).
Once I got a system worked out wit the lathe, they went pretty fast. These are NOT glued in yet. Trial run.

Continuing with construction of the upper railings. As I progressed to the front (head), the upper railings need to match the "arch" of the head. So therefore, this was taken into consideration. As you already see that I decided to continue with using lathe to make the post more decorative.
