I'm making some progress with my little table legs. I thought maybe you would like to see how I'm doing them?
The first two on the right were carved from balsa wood. As you can see, one broke and the other is headed for the trash. The balsa was too soft so now I'm using bass wood.
I cut a 1/4 inch square wooden dowel to the right length. Then I marked lines where I wanted my carving to start. I used a razor blade to make notches in the dowel for the design. The hardest part is carving the rounded areas. You can take away but you can't put back! :D
I hope to have these finished today so I can start working on the table top. It will be made of wood. Casey sent me this really great fabric that I'll use for the skirting on the front of the table. Thanks Casey!

The countdown begins! Only 24 days until Christmas and 22 days until I go to the BEACH! :D
