Meet Michelle
« on: January 23, 2019, 05:15:09 PM »
We made a custom pair of table legs that we really like and decided to offer them to our customers.  We are working on bench legs to match and would like your opinion. Her is the Michelle 28" table leg.



 

 

Working with the 17" height parameter causes a little problem with creating the bench.

so disregard that I am not a good photographer and the legs are not straight to the camera and gives the outside of the leg a weird look.

Which leg does everyone like better?  both are stable   the top flange is the same as our other legs 12"
The wide leg is 18" wide at the bottom(the same as our other bench legs) while the slender leg is 12" wide.

I vote for wide too, less easy to tip and a bit more elegant, I think.

I think the wide looks cool due to the taper of bottom to top, could you modify the smaller one to be proportioned to the larger, like 8 inches as the top and 12 at the base, to match the "figure"  of the table base.  Just throwing out ideas, are these prototypes?

I'll go against the grain and choose the narrower version because the table in the first picture looks very well proportioned.  The bottoms of table legs are normally inset 4"-6" narrower than the table top.  The table is not going to tip over and the wider version could interfere with chair legs.

For clarification, I thought the legs we were discussing for the wide versus narrow were for the bench.  Therefore I thought the wide would be better suited for a stable bench.  If for the table, I too will go for narrow at the bottom for similar reasons and MM.

I think the one is 12 at the top and 18 at the bottom, the narrow appears to be 12 and 12,  I would use wide for a table and narrow for the benches.

Yes, in proportion to the table top width.  I would prefer that the bottom width of the table legs be 8" to 12" narrower than the table top.

The first picture is the Michelle 28" table leg.
Scaling it down for a matching bench leg has caused some problems getting dimensions to work as we want to keep the height at 17".

Here is what we came up with.  We made it 16" wide at the base, adjusted the triangles to be more symmetrical and made the curved sides longer to attach at the top and bottom.

Not sure how I missed this thread the first time around.  Really like the final version of the bench legs - goes well with the table legs.  The 12-12 version was too tipsy looking, whether it is tipsy or not!
