Took the critical first steps today - sorting through the lumber and making choices. Always a difficult job, choosing what board goes where. I know I'll second guess myself through the entire process.
I just hope the finished project lives up to the potential in my Michigan QSWO!
Added: Already ran into my first snag. I was going to build up the legs to 2" square and then veneer the sides to show quarter sawn grain on all sides. Well, that was until I figured out that the taper at the bottom of the legs was greater than the thickness of the veneer. First challenge - go out and by some really thick QSWO, or, give up on the taper and simply round over the bottom of the legs? My design eye (that's funny ) tells me to stay with the taper.
