I've designed a set of end tables and a coffee table that will have legs that are 2"x2" in thickness.

Last night I milled the walnut for the legs (man what a great purchase that jointer was), and now that I have all of the leg pieces to their correct thickness, I'm concerned they might be a bit "beefy".

If anyone has pictures of a project of a table that has 2×2 legs, I'd love to see them to get some perspective.

Thanks!
Mike

tables comes in many sizes and shapes - just like legs. a 2×2 leg is never too small, nor always too big - it really depends on the complete design and look of the entire table.

what are the dimensions of your table? what is the thickness of it's top? THOSE will be the deciding factor if the legs match.

I highly recommend googling "golden ratio" "golden rule" in regard to furniture design.

Thanks for the pics guys, I appreciate it.

I've though about tapering it, but I just dont know…I'm still at the "scared to screw things up" stage.

I should have the aprons (or is it stringers, still trying to figure that out), milled in the next few days. Once I've done that, I'll be able to dry fit it all together and take a step back and look.
