Project Information

This is a referral I got from another art gallery in town. I had made some similar ones for a collector of Indian bronzes so they referred to another large indian bronze collector who wanted a natural looking stand. I first started with several slabs of 2 1/2''thick Texas walnut I have cut from neighbors hilltop ranches. I then ordered 10/4 walnut to get a 2 1/4''x 2 1/4 thick bottom leg. I then cut all twenty eight legs two in case others didn't work out. After I milled all the leg parts I then cut a taper on the legs from 2 1/4 down to 1 1/4'' . One trick is I jointed a 1/16 off each side after the table saw to mill smooth the saw marks. I then turned a round tenon three inches long on all the legs to fit a 1 1/4'' angled hole in the walnut slab tops. I then cut a V cut for the tenon on my bandsaw in the turned round legs. The bottoms of the legs were then cut with a compound cut on the chop saw and glued and clamped them down. They really turned out nice and strong. When they were installed they were installed sequentially looking like the slab I cut them from. If you notice the purple flake that only comes out of Texas walnut especially the crotch area you will see why it is my favorite wood to use . It's a wood dreams were made of . All this and Heaven too.
