Assembly of the Legs - Top Section

Start with 1/2 inch ACX plywood. Using Dave Painters drawings, I cut five wood section. Corners rounded with a 4" radius

After the section were cut, I started wrapping each leg section with the pipe insulation.

I used the smooth insulation with the adhesive. The adhesive helped keep the insulation in place while I stapled the insulation to the plywood

After all section were wrapped, I cut out notched pieces of wood and places them inside the wood sections. This helped "squish" the height of the section to 8 inches.

The wood dividers are just temporary as I'll have to change them when I build the next section of the legs.

I still have to decide on a finish. I will either use liquid latex or Plastic Dip Spray.
