Making legs in bulk using a jig

Today’s activity was legs. Following a straw poll in our Facebook Group, we received orders for 26 legs. Module specifications dictate that individual modules should be freestanding, so each member should have one more set of legs than they have modules.

76 metres of 3″ x 1″ planed softwood was purchased at the local timber merchants, cut into kits of parts, chamfered and assembled using a purpose built jig. Ordering and making in bulk like this enables good savings to be made, and passed on to members of the group.
