I have to ask this. I have been looking at drawings to build a Shaker rocker and side chair in a book by Robert Sonday (very nice Shaker examples) and both examples have 46” back legs. My lathe is 36” center to center, a Rikon with the extension, so finally the question. How can I make a 46 long leg? Do you make two halves and tenon it together? Or I dont and look at something else to build 🙂 I’m sure they are out there but I haven’t seen a lathe that will take a length that long. I’m a better cabinet maker than a turner, but I would really like to build these pieces. Thanks, Rick
