  • Table leg

    This is a single table leg or pedestal that I'm working on. It supports a movable table in our RV. The wood is red oak, 2-1/4" x 24", mortised into the base and the table bracket. The pattern of chip carved oak leaves is adapted from a Wayne Barton design. I've started at the bottom, and have only done a couple of the leaves.

    That will look great when it's finished, Phil!

      Nice project, Phil. Looks like a good design, and will be a fine execution, I'm sure. It's nice to have a piece that's functional as well as attractive.

          A very attractive design! I couldn't imagine what your RV must look like if it has hand carved and designed furniture pieces.

            Light and graceful, almost like gunstock carving. Nice job on the design and carving. Mike

              Looks great so far, I love the fluid shape of the leaves and the berries as well.

                Thanks for your encouragement, WCI friends. I had started this project several years ago when I replaced a breakfast nook setup with cabinets and a partially retractable table with chairs. When there's just the two of us, the retracted table is perfect for two. But if we have "company" it can seat 4 or 5 quite nicely. The table is supported on expansion rails from another old table, and the single pedestal that I'm carving.

                Debbie: As you might imagine, most of the existing wood in an RV is not good for carving, although the door/drawer fronts are red oak.
