Mr. B? Really. Are you really Mr. B? I swear you could be Mr. B. You never post when he's home so...... ya' know.
Actually these table legs didn't bother him much and he has given GREAT thought to table legs.
I have been asking him to build us a table. He's a skilled carpenter and we have easy access to every possible wood you could imagine. He's more than willing to build the table top but he is so hung up on leg proportions that he won't do it.
He had this slab of walnut -- about 2 feet wide, about 5 feet long, about 6 inchs thick, with a raw edge. We wanted to slice it down the length, bookend it and make a tabletop. It would have been amazing. He got all hung up on the legs so we never did it and someone bought the slab.
So even though I know he could build me the most amazing table ever he's all hung up on legs.
I've even been looking for tables I can tear apart just for the legs.
Okay. Rant over.
