As I stated in my previous post, the pictures I found of the cedar chests manufactured by the Lakeside Craft Shops showed fancy turned spindles that act as feet. I did not see any designs that I liked so I decided I would replicate the details on the front of the chest.
I made two of these this morning. One from walnut and one from white oak. The walnut was too dark and my eyes kept going to the feet every time I looked at it. The white oak is better. The picture shows the new leg with a beautiful stain on it. This is the color stain I am considering for the entire chest.
(The picture in the post is slightly distorted. If you double-click on the picture, it display the correct aspect ratio.)
I am pretty sure I don’t like the leg design. The square base does not look right to me. I will have to see what my sister thinks.
