Default Aren't these the best legs you have seen

Some one posted a picture of the drawing he used to make his legs. That gave me the idea to improve on my leg design. So I broke out my french curves and went to work. I used eagle america ogee bracket foot bit in a horizontal routing table. Then I cut the design out with a scroll saw. Just my way of doing it. Hope you like it because these feet are going to be showing up in my projects. I also intend to try different stains on them to see what will look good with different boxes.

Default Check out these legs

These are not mine I found them on another woodworking site. The builder is going to use them as legs in an island. But I thought they were great and some of you might like to see therm.

These legs look pretty good too.
I am building some cases and your legs would be a nice addition. How much time do you have in one? Could you describe the process?
Thanks,

Mike

Mike my legs take very little time. I bought the router bit and made a bunch of straight pieces with the horizontal router table. Then I took out my french curves and drew a pattern on the back of one piece that I had previously routed. I cut that pattern out with my scroll saw. I used the cut out as a pattern for all my future cuts. I can pop these out in 15 minutes after Set up. Eagle america has several sizes of bits so you can get one that will fit your projects. I am a poor country boy so I have to look at projects to make sure they are cost effective. Other wise the family would just go to a store and buy it.
