Finials

Making a top to a box, vessel or other turning becomes easy fast. But turning a nice finial is a bit of work. It requires both design and execution skills that are not natural to everyone. Hopefully some of these tutorials will help!!

 

Icicles and Finials Using 1/4Icicles and Finials Using 1/4
By: Bill Meador
In this really good tutorial, Bill not only shows us how he makes finials but he shows us the home-made tools that he uses. From the pictures of these tools, it would be easy to grind these shapes in your own shop using standard drill rod. Since the turning is so fine you wouldn't need to heat treat them so anyone can make these tools at home!

Bill gives the basic steps on making the finials and his pictures make it easy to follow along.

 

Turning a Flame Finial - Part 1
By: Charles Neil
Charles' video shows how to make a spiral top finial to antique furniture. He shows how to layout out the spiral, to cut it with a hand saw and then how to cut/carve/rasp the spiral to shape.

If you're making flame finials for furniture then this video is exactly what you need. But most woodturners may be making smaller finials so watching this video and using Charles' techniques will help you to achieve that perfect finial.
