« Part 1: The Design Part 2 of Asian Cabinet series Part 3: Two... Three Birds, one Stone »

The first task I decided to tackle is the cabinet legs. If I cannot get the legs right, all bets are off. They look deceivingly simple in the design picture, but having the cabinet float above the legs, as well as my attempt to make the legs from 8/4 stock complicates things a bit. Nothing that a jig cannot solve, right?

You’re a lot braver than I am, getting a metal clamp that close to a spinning saw blade!

Ingenious solution to the problem though. To paraphrase what you said, where there’s a jig, there’s most likely a LumberJock. ;)
