Spin The Wood

Let the turning commence. I use  a lot of care to turn the details on legs like this since some of the leg will remain square. The transition from square to round is very noticeable if not done perfectly. I'll start with the handle and use a parting tool to turn down the minimum handle diameter. In this case 1 1/2". Next I'll use a small gouge to begin removing the scalloped area. Then, I'll come back in with a scraping tool to smooth the transition. 

Once the scalloped handle is finished I use the parting tool once again and turn down the ankle to 1 1/4". I use a skew to remove the bulk of the waste on the tapered area and clean it up with a scraping tool. The turnings are very basic but require a soft touch.
