It took me a weekend to make the leg stock. I mortised the legs and cut integral tenons for the rails. This was the first time I’ve made integral tenons (used the festool domino on the first project). The mortises were machined with a bench mortiser. Pretty straight forward to setup and operate. I cut the tenons on the tablesaw with a tenon jig.
The next weekend I formed the horse hoof feet and cut the arch in the front rail. I used the Rigid bench top RO drum/belt sander to form the feet. It worked like a charm. Sweet machine.
