Check out those legs!

Well, feet anyway. Legs just made a better headline.

Daniel was kind enough to share this gorgeous three legged table. In his words:

I used one of your “spiders” on a little Shaker inspired table I made from cherry. The original was made about 1820 in the New Lebanon village in New York state. It had a small spider on the bottom of the post to strengthen the part that “holds it all together.”  I cut the legs off your spider just past the inner set of holes, and I also thinned the width of the legs a bit to make it less noticeable. You can see it on the photo if you look closely.  The original of this table is in the American Museum of Britain (who knew??) and is included among their 50 most valued items.  Here is a link to their version

Hope you enjoy.
