Turning Tapered Tenons

I took advantage of a day without meetings at work and snuck over to the office workshop yesterday afternoon. I had been milling the leg blanks for weeks and it was time to do the turning. After a few trys i got it down to the minimal amount of moves and managed to get the entire batch together.

After getting roughly round i marked the two spots for the parting tool.

After getting two my two depths i removed most of the material with a roughing gouge.

Then i added a rough cove.

Then smoother it out with a chisel gouge.

At home I used a hatchet to remove the left over and then finished shaving with my Veritas Tapered Tenon cutter.
