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.

Which one is shown under the table in the first pic? I like that look. I also think that each version would look good when paired to the right 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".

I prefer the wide for me as well but I was thinking it might look even better if the bottom was 15" or 16" instead of 18".
Good idea!  I think we will try making another pair.

We really need a picture of Michelle for comparison
I usually don't post pics of the girls we name the legs for but here is Michelle and Alissa from Axewomen.

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.



 

What do you think?

I like it.  But I guess with all that welding, they are going to cost a buck or two more than the others.   :D

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!

I like the revised version.

My only comment is to slot the holes in the top where the slab attaches to allow for seasonal wood movement.
