Well, I wanted this table to be sturdy and with these legs I think it will be.
It looks like they are going to end taking up almost as much time as all the small ones. A lot more material to remove!
Here’s where I started, gluing up the stock. Those are starting out at 4 1/2” square.
That is the template for the legs.
Here you can see the templates for the chairs and table side by side. I have already traced the outline on the blanks.
And already centered them and set them for the spur bit for the lathe.
Here is one already turned round at the foot and rough sanded.
Just an interesting photo showing the template next to a leg.
I have decided to veneer the table top. It should be interesting since I have never done anything this big before.
I ended up getting 1/2” (12mm) baltic birch plywood instead of 3/4”. I want to top to be pretty thick so I will glue two pieces of the 1/2” together to make a 1” thick top.
I should have the legs all done and starting on the top in the next entry.
