Ultra-minimal Mid-Century Modern. This leg is ideal for any Mid-Century Modern project where a Danish minimalist look is desired. Crafted from 1¾’’ stock, this leg is the thinnest and smallest of the Juhl legs. Smooth rounded corners, a tight, two-sided tapering form, and clean, transitional fluidity are hallmarks of this extra thin coffee table leg, inspired by the renowned Danish designer and furniture-maker, Finn Juhl.
Finn Juhl was the catalyst for the introduction and longevity of Danish Modernism in America. His works include several renowned table and chair designs, as well as the furnishings and layout of the Trusteeship Council Chamber, one of the most popular spaces in the United Nations’ headquarters in New York City. Drawing on classic Hepplewhite form while infusing smooth, radiused corners, our Juhl leg is a testament to the relationship between tradition and vision toward the future.
Juhl preferred to work with teak, along with other dark woods. We recommend this leg style to be crafted from walnut, cherry, or the traditional Danish furniture wood choice, the oaks. It is scaled for tabletops in the ¾’’ range. Unfinished, sanded with 180-grit paper. Choose your finish.
NOTE: Always prepare your components properly: Before using paint, stain or varnish with your project, carefully inspect each component and prepare it to achieve the desired outcome.
