Bodging a leg

John Richardson, Gimson-style ladderback chairmaker, had this old Windsor chair to repair.

One of the back legs was so wormy that it had snapped off - could I make him a new one as his turning skills weren't quite up to it?

I made it from Beech and slightly larger than the original to allow for shrinkage.

That is a lovely crisp turning.
