The money-smart (and attractive) way to build thick legs
Start with attractive stock
When choosing boards for the leg faces (A) [Drawing below], look for clear material of similar color. This makes each leg look like one piece of solid wood. If you find a straight-grained board more than twice as wide as one face, cut adjacent faces from it, and wrap the grain pattern around the corner.
After choosing your boards, rip them 1/4" over finished width, then cut them to length. Be sure to label each piece so you can identify parts for each leg and assemble them as intended.
