Designing legs for projects is not easy. The total end result rests on the legs. I love the so called bayonet leg. This leg is curved on the two inside edges and straight on the outside. See below.

Now show me yours.

Joe, how did you uncover that picture from my modeling days?

Still, I’m pretty happy with how the legs turned out on my first major project.

BWAHAHAHA!
You guys are not well, but I do like the bayonet leg config Don’t guess that I’ve seen it before. May I copy?
The tapered leg design is gettin’ kinda boring for me. This is a nice option.
Have you received good comments from the customer(s)?

OK @madts, you win. The only bayonet legs I have are on my Shaker Chest and those are only 5 1/2in long. Hardly enough to really count.

And in answer to your question, gender neutral… ;-)

Nice chest Mike. I might just copy that if you do not mind. By the way 5 1/2 ” is good if you get the speed just right. Or so I have heard.
