Barley Twisted Alder Island Legs
These barley twisted alder island legs were made for a customer in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. They measure 3 1/2″ X 35 1/4″. The customer, in this case had made a rough sketch of what he wanted. The woodturners, however, in Dallas decided it was not in their best interest to make them and so the contractor asked if I could do them. Of course, they were in a big hurry. Have you ever been in a hurry?
I guess the most distinctive aspect of the legs are the large barley twist. This particular barley twist measures 3″ from “high to high”. This size is normally reserved for larger diameter turnings but the design the owner wanted was something larger than what would normally be made.
