Here you can see one of the stainless steel leaf springs, and the four brass knobs that I turned on the lathe today. The threaded inserts for the wood have arrived, and I'm hoping that I might get an hour or so in the workshop over the weekend to start on the Oak frame.
They look good. Where did you get your spring material from?
I must get my lathe running again but I have been spoiled recently with the use of the CNC machine at work which also handles oak very well! (see panoramic camera link in my signature line).
