In Response To: Re: parts for a cedar chest (Jim Cole)

Jim is right about the spliting, I have seen Cedar bun feet that had held up for over seventy years with out splitting. I think that they had the peg turned on as a part of the whole and were glued from three layers. Avoiding the usual recessed screw through the bottom being the secret in the design. The glue joints were hidden with a 'V' and bead, 1 1/4" on the top and bottom and 3/4" in the middle layer.
