how are these used? (pics)
The former homeowner here was a furniture repair/ woodworker/ cabinetmaker. Among other things pertaining to his trade, he left two boxes of these pieces of wood. I'd like to know what type of wood it is and how are they used? I mean how are they fitted to serve as legs? I used a few to make a simple table for the patio and found them difficult to work with. Obviously I am doing something wrong. Please enlighten me!
