Well, I got all the leg blanks all cut to same length and squared up.
Then using a template I made from the full sized drawing I marked up all the blanks.
Then centered for a spur bit
And here I am about half way through trimming them on the bandsaw.
At about this point, fellow Lumberjock Chips stopped by for a visit. A great guy and we had a good visit.
After they were all roughed out on the bandsaw it was time for some turning. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate the lathe. I don’t know what it is about it but I do.
So I turned to my to my Legacy ornamental mill to shape the feet. It will do it more reliably and make each part exactly the same.
Here’s what I have done so far:
Rounded the end:
Added a groove at the top of the foot. It will end up being a step.
Added a step toward the bottom of the foot.
And finally Rounded the bottom. The part below the center of the radius will be trimmed off
The plan was to round off the large diameter, but that would mean I would have to use the lathe so I’m going to try and figure out something else that would look nice.
At this point I got called into the house to babysit my daughter while my wife goes to work.
I will probably finish these in the next part.
