The Root of the Matter....
As I get to them, I will put the plans up so that you can see them better and maybe use them.
These are the fastest legs that I have ever made. I may have to do some kind of house or box that I can make more furniture from this material. It was FAST and fun.
All I had to do was find a branch that went in at least three different directions at the joint.
I cut off three to start with. I needed to see how much I was going to have to do to them. Not much! I cut the main branch as level as I could and then by taking off a little at a time, I leveled the bottom. I knew that I wanted them about seat height. (1 1/2").
The hardest part was getting them level....And that was not hard.
It took me all of ten minutes to make all three.
I cut some planks for the seats. They were 1 1/4" long by 1/2" wide. Those were glued to the top.
That was basically all there was to it. I can't let the Terrible Two try them out yet. The glue isn't dry.
I like the same one that Tessie picked out, but I am partial to the one by her feet also....Hard to choose just one...And I think that it is going to be hard to make just three.
I am thinking that they would be cool with tops that are more shaped. Maybe even Woodsies would work. I will have to look to see what shapes of those I still have.
Anyway, I have to get back to the real world now....I still have another couple of loads of laundry to do.
See you tomorrow.
