Hey Guys and Girls i am back with something i been wanting to try for a while. I wanted to make some queen ann legs, not to fancy. My wife ask me to make her a couple of pland stands for these two plants we have in the house. I been going over several designs in my head so i came up with this one. I can tell you it take a while shaping those legs, i know you can buy them however i wanted to make them by hand. I made the stand with two differnts kinds of walnut the top had some sap wood around the edges my wife liked the light wood look. I Used can laquer for a finsish I hope you all like it.

I agree with your wife Monty, I love the sapwood in walnut. I know a lot of people don’t but to me it’s a very natural part of the wood. Great job on the legs and it’s too bad to cover the top. You did a gorgeous job.
