In the second video of our small Shaker bench series, we see from start to finish how to create and customize the two legs of the bench. The first step is to cut out a semi-circle at the bottom of each leg. Making these cuts does more than just make the legs look pretty. By adding a cutout, the bench will have four separate feet, making it much more stable. 

Start watching to learn the step-by-step instructions for creating the legs and stretcher of the bench and how these three parts are put together before attaching the top and other finishings.
