My second attempt at this style – trying more pleasing dimensions. Measures 13”x13”x25” and finished with Wipe-on Poly. My first time using hand plane and scraper to smooth the top.

I like the size and the style but can’t help thinking that they’re going to run away any second now : ) Very unique !

Getting the legs that shape takes careful planning and effort. Good work.

Interesting design, did you use templates for the legs and flush trim with a router?

Very nice. This is a style that I really like – clean, simple and interesting. I assume you used walnut and maple. I can envision doing this in several other wood combinations.

That is very nice, O love contrasting woods. I am interested in how you cut the legs.

Thanks for the comments.

I rough cut the curves using a band saw, then with a 1/4” mdf template I routed halfway through the curve with a template bit, then removed the legs from the template and finished the curve with a flush cut trim bit. Someday I’d like to invest in a longer template bit to simplify the process.
