« Part 13: Tenon testing my new LN Saws Part 14 of Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table series Part 15: Leg Joinery »

I’ve got the legs together now. I feel the upright is a little thick. I’m thinking of bowing the sides with a gentle curve of about 1-1.5cm in from each side. What are peoples thoughts? I thought to centre it or have it off centre opposite to where the stretcher tennon will come through.

3rd that opinion. It would blend well with the rest of the curves.
