MK Custom design woodworking-other projects: Loveseat leg extension

loveseat leg extensiont

This project was for my parents' neighbor, who wanted the loveseat raised about 4 inches in order to be easier to sit on. The pictures aren't real clear, but essentially I cut the old legs in half, made a tenon out of them, and made a mortise in the new legs. I also made the new legs have tenons of their own, which I stuck further into a 'mortise' created by the corner supports of the couch along with wedges I cut. Most of the weight was going to go in the back legs, so i stuck in a 6 inch 3/8 steel rod in the middle of the back two legs. Click on any picture to view full size
