Progress on two projects
« on: August 01, 2019, 03:10:56 PM »
First is a Townsend Knee Hole Bureau. Both concave shells are finished and I'm working on 3 convex shells. I am going to pick the best two for the bureau.
Second is a walnut ball & claw tilt and turn tea table. I'm thinking the legs may be too massive (thick) for the size of the pedestal.
What do you think?

I wish everyone would post stuff like this. There seems to be so little traffic at the Forum lately, and I've always enjoyed the taking a break during work to check to see if anything has been posted.

Pedestal/Legs look good to me David, but I am no expert. You could check out these Member-Submitted plans on the website (Member only side) to see how your measurements compare:
