Cabinet feet

Anyone ever buy these premade? And if you do, do you have a good source who isn't going to cost an arm and a leg?

I know... I should just make them.... Not quite there yet ;-)

I guess it's a leg for a leg. I looked at Van Dyke's Restorers and they run $40.00 to $45.00 a pair depending on the wood species for ones without carving.

I need to find a way to mass produce these if they're selling for that much.

this place has different styles and different woods, a couple are less than 4.25 each and corners are around 20.00 i think the style you are looking for starts on page 7 to the end of the listing there are more.

At 4" to 5" height it would probably take one of these planers that doubles as a molder to shape the wood. The only time I've made legs like that I cut the shape on a bandsaw and sanded it. I have a shaper but it would take two knife setups to shape a profile that large.

For what they cost it pays to make them. Some crown mouldings look pretty good upside down.

Really?

For what it costs usually you can't even buy the wood to do it let alone glue it up and shape it.

I have bought them on many occasions, from this company. Most of the time by the time you get the wood you are already behind in cost.

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com
