Topic tags/keywords: question

I am thinking of using plwood to make some hollow legs for the table. Anyone see a reason way it would not work? The legs will be about 3” square. The board would be miterd to hide the edge of the ply and joind with biscuits. From there I plan on mounting the legs on the inside of a skirt/apron and set a torsion box on top of it.

No reason except the sharp corners. You could run some angle molding along the to cover them though.

Or you can cut about a 1/4” to 1/2” of the sharp bevels off and glue up some solid wood in their place.
That way you could round off the corners.

I think I’d go with the solid edges to allow for softening the edges.

I guess then I will use up some of the aspen that has been air drying for the last year. Thanks again for the help.
