« Part 23: Next Step: Shape my Leg Parts, Then Glue-up Part 24 of Trestle Table series Part 25: Leg Assemblies »

Today I cut the curved leg parts at my bandsaw.

With my Wood River low angle block plane I removed the saw marks. The burn marks were done with my 1/4” bandsaw blade. I replaced it after cutting my first leg part; a foot. I replaced that blade with a 1/2” Wood Slicer bandsaw blade for my 17” Grizzly G0513ANV bandsaw.

I was pleased to learn that I could use my leg taper jig for tapering the legs for this trestle table. I placed blue painter’s tape down on the surface of my table saw along the edge of the taper jig. This was so I could determine the position of the jig to cut my leg’s taper. It worked well for me.

I used the off cut to position the second cut on the leg without me being required to re-position my table saw’s RIP fence.

Tomorrow I will plane each of these parts plus use my spokeshave to shape bevels on the leg assembly parts.
