This is where I need your help, fellow Lumberjocks! I’d like to build something similar to the trestle table that I’ve uploaded. The table top I can do, but I need help with the square pedestals. I assume they are 4×4 pedestals with essentially moulding around, but… has anybody made anything like this before? I can’t find any info about it anywhere, nor have I ever seen any moulding planes large enough to plane the middle section of the pedestal.
Also, for the feet, if I cut them with a bandsaw, what would you recommend for prepping the wood for finishing? I’ve tried wrapping a large dowel in sandpaper before (on a tambour style mantle clock), but that was useless…. took WAY too long! I have a flat sole spokeshave, but thats useless on concave surfaces.
Thanks ahead of time for all your help! I’d love to be able to help in return, but I have much learning to do before I can give advice!
