Great advice from all, thanks. I cranked out a couple of legs that I am reasonably happy with. They incorporate most of the elements of the table and are really close in detail and dimension to each other. I will post photos this weekend for some input and abuse. I think the design could be tweaked. Two things. The bench legs will be painted, I'm open to suggestions on what type of wood to use for the best results at my skill level. Also I haven't seen much online regarding making the transition from the the lower turned portion to the upper square where the stretchers will tie in. Thanks again.
