Sweet piece Ivan. The leg idea is great and I really like the color combination a lot. Thanks for the post.

Hi Ivan,

I like this trunk, nice finish job too.

How’d you make the legs?

Thanks for sharing.

Parker,

The legs are a twist on a cabriole leg, basically I made a pattern, bandsawed out the blank and then hand shaped the legs round. I used a shinto rasp, nicholson rasp, block plane, sandpaper, whatever was lying around in reach to get it to final shape.

Big difference here is that I did not cut out the back of the legs like in a cabriole, as this is where I ran a dado to accept the plywood side, which were then glued in place with Marine Expoxy.

Cheers,
Ivan
