Personally, I would not take it into consideration.
I do quite a bit of work with QSWO, and look at many originals in the
process, and can't recall seeing a real "period piece" that did take it into
consideration ... and rarely a modern, commercial piece that does.
To me, a leg/post with the same face grain pattern on all sides does not
look right. While this is undoubtedly a matter of personal taste and
opinion, I do think there is too much emphasis on this aspect of furniture
making today, mainly by dint of "how to" articles in magazines the past few
Just my tuppence ...
