Need some advice on what to build for legs (30-33 inches tall) for a piece of dark walnut I acquired. I am wanting to find some vintage cast iron lathe legs, but the amount people want for them is insane ($300-$900). So I thought I could custom make replicas out of wood.

But I’m open to opinions from the wealth of knowledge on here!! So throw out some ideas. I have a pretty good setup in the tool department, so the only thing out of reach is the design ideas…

Also, I performed my first wood surgery using bowties. Almost bought the template and router bit, but figured i’d do it with a chisel first to see how difficult it was. Turned out pretty good for my first time.

Went ahead and built the base for the sofa table. Any idea what I could get for it, $$, If I were to sell it??
