My wife wanted a place to set some decorations on the porch. As you can see in the first picture, I have an abundance of cedar. Some of it is for a toddler swing set I have been asked to build for our church. I also thought it would look good with the cedar porch swing I made earlier this year (see that post here). She didnt want anything fancy, but I was thinking why build something that doesnt look good. So this is what I came up with. This is my first time doing tapered legs and I have to say the simplicity of it surprised me. I went online and looked for tapering jig videos, found one that didnt look too difficult to make. It wasnt. I put a 45* chamfer on the top and a 1/4” roundover on the bottom…she is really pleased with it and thats all that matters, but I think it turned out quite nice as well. It is finished wit Spar Urethane.
Thanks for looking and as always, comments and constructive criticism is welcome.
