SquareHippo,

One option would be to use a Lock Miter Joint Router Bit, such as the one made by MLCS, to make your leg blanks, gluing up four pieces to form a blank that looks like one solid piece of wood. The bit is a “bit” finicky to set up properly, but I’ve heard that the setup jig from Infinity really helps. The nice thing about this method is that you can use pieces that all have the same grain pattern, such as all quarter sawn or all rift sawn, etc.

Good Luck!

Be Careful!

PS: Boy, I must be slow typing. In the time it took me to write my comment three other LJ’s gave you good advice. You’ve got a couple of options, just experiment until you figure out which is best for you.
