    Large cone project

    This is a project I designed a long time ago and finally getting around to building it. When I turned the Gun Cabinet lamp it took a lot of testing and playing. Especially the mitered staves and glue up. This was the test piece I did to solve those problems. It was pretty nasty with glue joints slipping and misalignment. It did help me solve the problems and the Gun lamp came out excellent. Anyway I saved this piece with a project in mind hoping that I could turn past all the misalignment. I did. It's probably 1/2" or less in thickness in spots but that's OK for this project. Anyway I hope to complete it shortly. I have to stop and turn some bed posts for a friend and have the grandkids for the next 3 weeks so that will put this project off for a while. This is 45" tall, 32 compound mitered staves. 16" wide at the bottom and 5" wide at the top.

    Knowing John, that's probably only 2" long and photoshopped. Just kidding, John. I am quite sure it's the real deal.
