08 Joint Design Nº 75

I used masking tape to secure the legs to a turntable. I have several combination squares in my studio, so I combined the parts of two of them to make a holder for a dental tool, which I taped on one of the parts with masking tape. I adjusted the tool to the height I wanted to scribe a line on the legs. Then I turned the turntable and scribed the line with the sharp point of the dental tool. This was done slowly and carefully. Click on any image to enlarge it.

I am surprised at how much of the leg I may need to cut off. This scribed line is the same distance from the turntable on each leg, so hopefully each leg will be the same length.

I will be measuring down from this scribed line in order to cut the legs into upper and lower legs at the knees.
