One of the first things I notice on a well-made table or desk is the legs. Table legs with straight, even grain really make a project stand out. But there’s a little more to getting great-looking legs than just ripping a blank to size. The problem you run into when cutting a leg from solid stock is drastic grain differences. Usually, you’ll get two sides with straight, even grain. But the other two sides will have mismatched grain patterns. I’ll share a method that give me reliable results every time.
