Today’s episode is the first of a two part series on the construction of a solid Maple table base built for our friend’s daughter. The tabletop is a pre-manufactured top with a Maple edge banding, so we won’t be covering the construction of it.
In this first part I’ll demonstrate creating a template pattern for re-creating the four legs I need and then I’ll take the stock from rough to finished.
All four legs are curved and attached at 90º to each other and when designing them, our friend’s already had a specific shape in mind, so it was a matter of duplicating it as close as possible.
After a little trial and error, I found a quick and easy to achieve the curves without having to buy expensive drafting devices. I’ll talk a little bit about it in the beginning and hopefully you’ll find it useful.
