Here’s the prototype of the leg. The lines are just for reference. The bottom line is where the curve starts. The bottom of the leg is 3” wide, the top is 2.5” wide. The top line is where the top of the rail will sit. It’s not a very big curve, but it’s big enough that I want to make sure that the pieces meet together exactly. That means I need to create a curve on the rail that will complement the curve on the post. The post curves in, so the rail needs to curve out to complement the curve on the post. I could make it easy and just do a simple angle, but I thought a slight curve would look nicer.
