I need to cut 12 rear legs for chairs.
I havent measured the exact degree of slant that the legs will slant backwards above the seat area, but Im limited because of no bandsaw.
I have wood that measures 2.75 inch (almost 12/4)thick by 6 inches wide, lengths vary from 4-8 feet.
If I had a bandsaw, I could slice the wood to 1.75 inches thick. I dont.
I can plane, but then I have to sacrifice 1 inch of wood. Mahogany is expensive.
I can slice it on my tablesaw, but that limits me to cutting it 3 and 3/8 wide, which means it will cut down on the angle of the back.
Do I have any options? I thought about cutting wood half through, like dado cut, then flipping over on table saw, and plane even if I need.
with the angle on the upper back of leg, Id prefer around 3.75-4 inches on the face of lumber, so I can cut it out. If I limit the face width of lumber, I limit the slant.
Does this make sense?
