Making the Legs

1. Each leg assembly is constructed from two lengths of 1 x 10 material supported on the top and bottom by 2 x 4s. Cut two half legs (A) from

1 x 10 pine, each 14-1/2 inches long.

  1. A pattern for the heart cutout is provided in Figure 1. Enlarge and trace the pattern onto the center of one edge of the half leg (A), as shown in Figure 2, and cut along the traced line. Save the resulting half heart (that was a halfhearted cut, right?) for later. Repeat the process for the other half leg. "
  2. Cut two leg supports (B) from 2x4 pine, each 19-3/4 inches long.
  3. Stand the two legs (A) on edge with the cutouts facing each other. Center both legs on the face of one leg support (B). The two legs should be positioned 1/4 inch apart and

1 /2 inch from each end of the leg support (B), as shown in Figure 3.

Screw through the leg support (B) into the edge of each leg (A) using about five 2-1/2-inch-long screws. Attach the remaining leg support (B) to the other end of the two legs (A).

5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 to construct the second leg assembly.
