Hey Everybody,

Well, here it is Christmas time, and if you are like me, you are contemplating a special Christmas gift.

This year I decided to make a Game Table and this first video will deal with fabricating the table legs.

The inspiration for the legs comes from Federal style furniture,the detail that caught my eye is an embellishment at the foot of the leg. I found it was not as easy to duplicate as I had thought and it, became necessary to improvise. A couple of jigs solved the design problem and some blue tape sorta solved the problem of those pesky wedge shaped cut-offs getting stuck between the saw blade and insert.


This is an invitation to all you other Woodworking Santas to post some pictures or videos of your Gifts in the workshop. So get yourself a glass of eggnog, pull up a chair and enjoy.

Dave, this was a pretty good video. It was well produced and you are documenting the construction process well. I am looking forward to seeing the next installment in this series.

I agree with you about inclusion of sapwood in the project. I purposefully leave the sapwood in my cherry projects since I like the contrast that it creates. And those were a couple of nice jigs that you created. Often we let “challenges” such as putting the cove on the legs create obstacles rather than looking at them as opportunities to be creative as you did here.
