Hi, this is Jon, and in this clip we will be creating the legs. If we look at our diagram we'll see that the legs are component "L" and if we reference our materials list, component "L", we need two of them. They're going to be 1x5 inches wide, by 16 1/2 inches long. We're going to start by cutting two pieces that are 16 1/2 inches long, and we're going to be using the radial arm saw. Next we need to set our table saw to 5 inches wide, and cut both of our pieces. Now if we go ahead and set that leg on top of the foot we can see how it is going to be assembled. And a couple things to keep in mind is that the base of the leg is just a little bit higher than our curve on our foot, and our leg is going to go on the inside of the feet.
