Is there a standard relationship/ratio between the height and width of bracket feet for a commode? I am copying a bath room commode from a magazine picture and it is impossible to tell what the relationship between the width and height of the feet is. I am making the feet between 4 and 5 inches in height. The foot will be in the same vertical plane as (ie, flush with) the face of the piece. Another question is: should I make the feet separately and then join them to the carcass or should I just extend the face panel to the floor and cut the feet out of it, thus resulting in one piece construction (at least with respect to the front).

I don't know if there is a standard (books could be filled with the stuff I don't know :), but I think as long as it looks in proportion it should be okay. Is there sufficient toe space if you carry the face panel straight to the floor?

I think it's a totally aesthetic issue. Some bun/bracket feet are wider than they are tall, some Shaker legs are taller than they are wide, and some Arts & Crafts feet span the entire width with a pleasing curve. Norm made some nice feet, just do a search on www.newyankee.com for "chest".
