    A Little Morning Practice



    In my morning troll through the various design sites I look at, I saw an oval table with two sets of legs that were joined something like these. I decided to doodle out a round table just to remember it. The base ought to be pretty straightforward, huh?

    It seems like kind of a neat idea because you only need to put one mortise in each leg. the stretchers get cut at an angle and a mortise in the side of the stretcher and you're set.

    I really like that design. I'm guessing getting the mortise angles dialed in would be quite a challenge.

    The mortise angles on the stretchers would 30 degrees off perpendicular.

    I was thinking more about the mortise attaching the stretchers to the legs, although SketchUp will tell you that number pretty easily I guess, too, huh?

    I tilted the legs to 5 degrees.

    You could measure the angle, though.

    That's really cool. With 3 legs, no worries about leveling it on the floor, either...

    Brent, I was thinking that's the best part. I'd have designed it with one leg if I could make it work.

    Heck, even I can figure out how to do that one...

    And I could make it on the lathe. Bonus!
