I like the rustic look, the one looks like it would fit nicely behind a couch. Well done.

I looked at the pics first, and I didn’t know if it was my eyes or if there was just a sight splay. Sure enough, you mentioned the 5 degree tilt. Looks good, nice job.

On the cross support tenons, do you taper the ends any to account for the 5 degree splay, or is a straight joint?

Also – very nice. Love way you created the mortises.

I like so much about these, especially the longer version. The feet though seem out of proportion or something. Maybe its the angle of the photos or something messing with the perspective?? Example in the last photo the feet seem to stick out wider than the top.

The feet are the same width as the top to give stability.
