Greene and Greene Legs and Other Parts
Lots of progress on the Greene and Greene desks over the past two weeks. I made 16 legs with inlet details (8 per desk) and fully mortised (photo below shows the legs before mortising), tapered, rounded-over (1/8″ round-over) and rough-sanded them.. I am pleased with how they turned out.
In addition to the legs, I cut and tennoned the four interior braces out of secondary wood (poplar) and cut and tennoned all of the lower rails (14). The lower rails still need to be rounded-over on the router table.
I am going to use soft maple of the rest of the secondary wood parts (drawer sides and backs), but I used poplar for the braces since I had it available and those parts will not be seen after the desks are complete.
