How would you make round tapered curved legs like these. I'd like to do as little hand shaping as possible ( I need to make 40 legs) Mine start at 2 5/8'' diameter and end at 3/4" diameter at the floor.
The only thing I can think of is start at the bottom with a 3/8" radius router bit and round each edge to the 1"by1" point. Then start with a 1/2'' radius bit and move on up to end with a 1 1/4" radius bit. Then I'd fair out/ blend the areas that aren't fully rounded by the router.
The front legs on chair #CR103 is very close to what I'm making.
