The Gilpinoid Leg
Adaptable furniture leg gives casework the distinctive mark of its maker
Designed originally to relieve some of the sharp edges on his furniture and make it more toddler-friendly, this leg has become a favorite of Hank Gilpin’s. The leg combines a traditional square post with a fin-like projection on the outer corner that can be rounded off. It functions like a square leg, but opens the door to lots of design options: a tapered fin, a turret corner, and more. Gilpin shapes his leg from solid wood to guarantee continuity of grain and color.
