Hi everyone, was really wanting to broaden my dining table bases to include the fancy pedestal bases to cut with a band saw. I do not care to get into lathe work. Less fancy templates are good too. i have google searched and just wondered if any company offers a template to trace onto stock and cut with a band saw. Thoughts?

Just to be clear this would just be for the vertical piece.

There are drawing methods to determine a products parts dimensions. Your local library or online may offer help. Here is a pedestal from woodcraft with the overall dimensions shown.

There have been several threads on the topic
of how to make these pedestals quickly.

In terms of shapes old furniture books may include
stuff like that – “Encyclopedia of Furniture Making”
might be a good place to look.

Have your say...
