Ok, fairly new to wood work. I’ve done some little projects and expanding as I go along. Wanting to step up and get into the harder woods (have done pine/poplar side tables, doll house, entertainment center, bakers rack, toy box, book shelf, etc etc)
Anyways, wife bought a bed, it was on clearance at a higher end store and they marked it down lower than what I thought I could buy the wood for. The rest of the items I told her I wanted to build. Putting in a lot of different ideas to customize our bedroom.
One look we like, convex legs, and with my searching haven’t really seen a jig / process to make them. So any ideas….how to do this?
Pic won’t embed so here’s a link….
The other idea, that would go with the bed and seems easier than a convex curve would be to do a reverse taper on the legs of the nightstands, dresser, and chest.
Any ideas? The legs look like maybe 8/4 stock tapered down to 4/4 on the ends?
