Sometime in the last couple of years, Woodsmith (I think) published an article about making curved table legs. I can’t locate it and am hoping someone here will recall it.

This was specifically about laminating legs, but not bent lamination. Rather it was a glued up post that could be band sawed to the final shape. The glue up added material at the base so that you didn’t need a super thick piece of stock to make the entire curve. I think there was a rabbet so that there was more “meat” at the glue line.

Ring any bells?

Is the curve leg end table the one you are looking for? If not and you know specifically which type of project it was, you can try more extensive searches on that webpage.

Unfortunately not. I’m not having a lot of success with their search either. Thanks for trying though!

If you’ll give me a little more information about what kind of table and maybe about how long ago you think it was, I’ll give the search one more try.

Don’t recall the table. The legs flared out at the bottom. Trick was to glue on two blocks at the bottom into which you could cut the flare without using an entire large piece of stock that realistically wouldn’t exist. So imagine a 1.5×1.5. Glue another 1.5 piece on one face. Then glue smother that is 3” wide across both pieces. Now the bottom is 3×3 square and the top is 1.5×1.5 square. Cut the leg at the bandsaw.

See Issue #245, October 2019, page 56 : Search Glued up legs. I think the legs are actually for a cabinet.
