I’ve worked out some details. I’m not committed to the red foot yet but I think I like it. The red can be also be sanded to highlight the tool marks. The chamfer will be biggest at the corner radius, diminishing at the ends.

Never very far away.

When I mortise a small job like this I don’t try and centre the joint, it’s just extra work for only eight joints. I get it close and work face down, right and left. The tenon is an exact fit to make assembly smooth. For the same reason, I use rub blocks at the mitres to minimise the clamps needed.

The inside corner is about 92 deg. to give the leg some extra kick out.

We’re finally getting some rain. Low light downside.

The table frame is interesting, and the red foot looks great, like it’ll be held up by four shiny apples…

Ah! Granny Smith Green might work well, too (^_^)

I like the feet very much, particularly the textures. Curious to see the finished product.

That is such a neat bird.
