This is from the Schwarz’s new book.
http://lostartpress.com/collections/books/products/the-anarchists-design-book.

Top is Ash and legs are soft maple.
One set has square and one set has octagon.
They don’t really look it but they are pretty sturdy.

I really like the method of making tapered legs its described in the book but also in this video.

The guy in the video makes it look more complicated than it needs to be.
Set a stop half way. Set the depth for half of want you want to remove. joint to the stop then flip and joint fully – its so easy. Did everyone know this except me?

What do you think.
