Based on one dated to about 1900. I drew it for a tutorial on cutting the stopped chamfers.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.

Dave I always enjoy your posts. I just wish I could come up with stuff like this.

Eventually it'll be published as a blog post there.

Thanks. I just troll the web for likely pieces of furniture. I might have passed on this one except I had done an online training session with a fellow who wanted to know how to make stopped chamfers. I thought it would be a good topic for a blog post and with all the chamfers, it gave me an opportunity to show a few different options.

Maybe so. After all, how many different ways can you arrange carwash machines? :D

Nice one Dave, interesting flutes on the legs and stretchers. I wonder how you would do that in the shop. I have an idea that would require some work with a chisel.

Thanks Mr. Fish. ;)

Walt, I'm sure a little chisel work would be needed at the ends. I expect you could take most of the waste off with a router. It wouldn't be difficult to build a jig that would make it easy with a router. I have an idea for an even simpler setup for the Router Boss but you'd need to have the Router Boss first. ;)

With a little modification, this bench would make a nice student desk for someone who doesn't want one made of termite poop.

Except that there appears to be a little step where the chamfer meets the ends, you could build a sort of sled that holds the leg at 45 degrees and run it past an ordinary rabbet bit. If that step is there you'd have to stop a bit short of the end, move over a bit for the step, do the end, and then clean up the little step with a chisel.
