This is my version of the leg rest posted by Lumberjock Zipsss. It’s quite comfortable. I made a couple of prototypes out of 1/2” baltic birch. This gives the piece a little “flex”, which I enjoy, but could be bad as it encourages me to sort of “rock” back and forth with it. The first proto failed where the half-moon supports meet the horizontal piece, so I dovetailed them in on the second. The first prototype may be salvageable; I’m putting in a few screws and dowels. Painted with milk paint – red over black over green, with Watco Danish oil finish (in progress). I sort of wish I had gone black over red, though.
