Quadrilinear legs – Morris chairs and other legged craftsman pieces
It has been discussed here that an “easier” approach to leg joinery is to glue up multiple thicknesses of stock, QS to the outsides, then “veneer” the multiply edges with QS slices.
Plane down afterward so the veneers end up a fat sixteenth or so in thickness. Ease the edges of those legs and you would hardly ever know which sides are the veneers.
Would one not need to burn up nice QS stock for those inner plies of the stack glueup? Why not even a less expensive species? I’m thinking, for a three-ply leg, of having the inner core part of poplar or maple.
See an issue here?
Also, and this is a separate topic, really, what sort of “feet” do you like to use on the bottom end of those chair legs?
