OK... Another parsimonious wood project is now underway... looking to build a 3-legged bedside table!
I hate hogging out wood for moldings. Why not build up a molding from smaller pieces cut at the bandsaw?
Here is the table concept in progress. Recycled plywood top, recycled knock-down fasteners holding the legs to the plywood. Built-up moldings being eyeballed for proportions. Recycled German hand-plane (fastidiously restored using around $5000 of Shopsmith tools in the basement). Yep, I'm money ahead all right!!!
