The sides of the legs are each 8″ long and the brace connecting them is cut at 6.5″ wide.
I also want to mention, I mitered the bottom of the legs at 15 degrees so the legs sit flush when unfolded. I felt like this would help the overall look.
Next, I used a jig saw to round the top of the legs. This allows them to unfold without interfering with the apron. (You think I would have taken a photo of this… bad blogger… bad, bad blogger.)
Side Note – this was my first time using a jig saw and man, I can’t wait to come up with more projects using it! It is so easy to use you’ll really want to add this tool to your workshop sooner than later.
