Ok, so it was done, and the deep breath was taken, and then on second look it was just so clunky looking.
Instincts told me to introduce a curve, so I used a plastic ruler and some clamps to get the off set from the ends and scribed away and jigsawed the arcs and sanded them on the OSS. And it helped!
The only “next time” thought I had was I’d bring the short and long stretchers closer—that is, the top of the long stretcher would be the same line as the bottom of the short one. Although now that I say that and look at it, the arcs might not look right.
Maybe next time all should be in the same line.
Tell me what you think. Assume the legs would be straight, not splayed—I didn’t want to take the time to do that. If it seems a little bottom heavy to your eye, what would you suggest to alleviate that?
Should it have more overhang on the sides?
Would you have guessed, upon first seeing it, that it was a One Board Project?
Next week: some kind of finish to make the Juniper pop.
