I have enough boards for the legs and bottom but not for the top. Oh, and there is a big ol nasty knot at the 6 1/2 mark on almost each board. Must not have been the cleanest log.

Anybody got any suggestions?

You are looking at the entire board as having this cup, curve to it. You mention the knot at 6 1/2’ so they are longer than any bench leg would ever be.

Cut closer to final length will drastically reduce the amount out you are now, and possibly will allow you to finish much closer to your 8/4 size.

Not knowing more, or seeing the wood that’s all I got…..
