Walnut Sideboard – Legs
To keep the sideboard legs stable I decided to make them with a birch ply core and solid walnut mitred corners.
Gluing up the core then 2 sides, then core and two sets of sides, took time and all the small clamps in the workshop.
Here you can see all the blocks that aided the glue up. They were attached with glue and paper joint to allow easy removal afterwards.
Cutting out the mortises. You can just see the birch ply core.
