Octagonal Legs

by | May 23, 2017 | 0 comments

A couple months ago I filmed an Octagonal Side Table DVD and a Milk Painting DVD with Popular Woodworking. They should be out sometime this summer. Here’s a photo of the table:


To film a DVD you need lots of parts at various stages, so I made a pile of bent octagonal legs one morning:


10:12: Fourteen riven legs

10:47: All squared

10:54: Cut to length

10:57: Marked

10:59  Coffee break

11:32:  1st leg shaved

12:37:  All shaved!

In the steam box.
