That is amazing work… especially knowing you made it by hand. Really good work.

I recently made an altar for my mother out of poplar and forgot how much I like doing semi-ornate woodwork with it.

Thank you all for your comments. The template I make by hand then I duplicate them on an inverted pin router. The pin router can cut out a baluster in about 60 seconds. http://lumberjocks.com/grosa/reviews
