Repairing Vintage Desk Legs
I just joined so please bear with me for any mistakes. I've recently picked up a vintage wooden desk and have been in the process of "restoring" it. I'm not trying to restore the desk to look new; I would like to keep some history attached with it and keep small dings and scratches help show it's stories. However, the legs are pretty chewed up and I'm not sure what's the best course of action on attempted amateur repairs.
Image 001 is a close up of one of the feet. All feet are in more or less this state. The brass cap at the bottom looks squared, but over the decades, the wood has been chipped and rounder over. I would like to keep the legs squared but obviously I can't do that when there's no material left to reshape. This is my predicament... Do I round over the edges to make them look uniform, but by doing so the brass cap's will no longer match since they are squared? Alternatively I can do the opposite, and somehow add wood back to the corners of the legs so I can reshape them to be square and match the brass caps?
Additional pictures 002, 003, and 004 show other angles and close ups of the damaged leg. All leg's are in similar states, and there are 8 total legs to the desk. I'm fairly handy at working with tools, but I am also a complete amateur by woodworking experience. I'm hoping to open this up for discussion so I can learn from those more experienced at this than I, and to receive some good suggestions for how to proceed.
Thank you in advance, Cheers!
