I am working on my walnut mid-century modern cabinet and am now in the assembly stage. Size is 48Wx33Tx16D, including 7″ legs. I’ve turned the legs which are a simple taper. Given the its shape, I am finishing the pieces prior to assembly so I cannot just loose fit the legs and see what looks right. I also think it will be easier to pre-drill the holes for the legs rather than doing it after assembly. The attached pic shows my inspiration, mine will be taller and less wide and have virtually no sap wood.
My question concerns leg placement. How far in from the edges should the legs go? The legs are 90′ from the base, not splayed out.
Is there a standard for leg placement in this instance, or general guidelines?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
