I currently average about 6 tables a month and steadily falling further and further behind. Right now I’m about 6 months out and would like to change that. The picture I posted is something that takes too much time for me to do and would like to find someone who can kick these out a lot faster than myself. Any suggestions?

Perhaps a change of design can save time
and money. It strikes me that generally
such a design would involve band sawing
and a great deal of sanding. I suppose
some CNC machines or duplicating carvers
could save time on it.

http://tablelegs.com has a selection of legs.

Thanks Loren but changing the design is not an option. This style leg is what my designers and customers want. Maybe not this particular leg but that style. I don’t know the proper term but some refer to it as “square turned” legs or pedestal. The designers have set a goal of 24 tables a month so I really need to find a supplier. Last week I bought a 52” wide belt sander that should help tremendously. That doesn’t help much with these legs. I have looked all over the internet and can’t find a supplier. There has to be someone out there that can build these much faster than me (band saw, router and miter sled is not the way to do it)Lol

Osborne would most likely do your legs for you. Give them a call on the phone and discuss it with them. Pretty nice folks there and just a a short drive away for me.

$200-$400 a leg set – times two. Ouch!

Spendy no doubt, but the demand could be meet so the designers don’t find

someone else.

The Osborne folks are really great. Talk to them about an ongoing operation and you can probably get a deal – they supply the furniture industry, and we know they would not pay retail prices.

Also look into Adams Wood Products. They are also great to work with.

Thank you for all the responses. i have used Osborne for years and they are great to work with. However, these type of legs are expensive. They are also too small. They will make custom sizes but the price skyrockets. 12” legs like the ones pictured are over $600 a piece.

I hate bean counters and designers – “it has to be this and it has to be cheap.’ Life doesn’t always work that way.

Could you hire someone for $10 an hour and let them use ur lumber and equipment to make them? A high school or college kid that like woodworking would probably love that job and would be better than flipping burgers and waiting tables
