It's starting to look like a table... base at least

The legs are starting to look like legs. Here I'm doing some final smoothing with the 4 1/2 before the legs are joined to the feet and draw bored tight. Draw boring is a process by which a pin is driven through the leg and foot. The hole in the leg is offset towards the shoulder of the leg by about 1/64 to 1/32 of an inch. This process locks the shit up tight! I learned about draw boring from Chris Schawrz. If you make stuff with wood and you don't know who Chris Schwarz is you better axe somebody!
