This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ...does not leave a properly finished edge and this would stamp the piece as having been done by one who does not understand how such work ought to be done. Do not be satisfied until the curve is regular, smooth, and square to the very edges. Finally, it should be smoothed with sandpaper. The paper should be held as it is in sandpapering a chamfer (Fig. 32). Do not use a rounded block, for it will certainly ruin the edges.' The taper of the legs may vary, as their size may also. The top may be upholstered either as shown, or like the chairs in Figs. 138 and 147. If the woven leather is to be used the triangular blocks at the corners should be omitted, as these are to receive the tacks in fastening the upholstering about the corners. Oblong Footstool. This footstool is not difficult to make. The instructions given in the general directions cover substantially every feature of making. This footstool may be made to receive any of the tops shown in Figs. 117, 138, and 147. The sizes may also be varied. It should not, however, be much larger than the dimensions given in the drawing (Fig. 120) unless the stock for the legs is of a larger size; 2-inch square legs go very well with rails of these sizes. The amount of work is lessened. by making the lower rail only f inch square. As the tenons meet at the corners, one set should be shorter than the other set. All may be worked the same length, and after the end rails have been glued to place, the tenons on the side rails may be cut to length. Do not attempt to miter the ends of the tenons, for if your work is properly done this will be unnecessary, and if the joints are not well made, the mitering will do little if any good. Do not forget to glue the-end rails in place first, then test the side rails...
