Have you ever wanted to top off a project with some real nice feet to set them on?
This blog is probably for you.
Have you got a nice piece of moulding laying around. If so you can probably make a set of feet. If you want you can also use your router table to make your own like I did below.
I then cut it at 45’s like I was making a small picture frame.
Then hold the pieces as shown. (You can make wider feet if you want to.)
And use it to trace the outline. Then do the same for the other end.
Note: notice the large radius detail is down on both parts.
Then using a spacer under the narrow side of the part, use your scroll saw to cut them out.
You will end up with something like this.
When you hold them together you can see what they will look like.
I probably should have cut the rabbet while it was still one long piece, but I forgot.
Then add a corner block into the rabbet to finish things up. It will provide you a small area in the corner to attach it with a screw.
I made these for a project I will be posting soon to show you what they look like on a completed project so add this page to your favorites to see them in place. I will add the project today.
Here is the feet on my Chess Set.
And here’s the completed project:
