Archetectural Turnings

A builder I work with is restoring the facade of a store front and needed some turnings duplicated because the original turnings had rotted and been repaired too many times. Because of the length of the turnings, it was necessary to turn them in sections. I ended up turning the large tops and bottoms in groups and then the long thinner sections separately. After the turnings were finished, the sections would be ripped on a table saw into quarter turnings and then put in place by the builder. Here are some photos of my part in the process:
