« Part 18: Queen Anne Side Table - Roughing out the legs Part 19 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 20: Queen Anne Side Table - More leg shaping »

After band sawing the legs to rough shape in my last post, the next steps in developing the legs were to turn and shape the feet and to smooth and mark them for final shaping.

This was an interesting process. There’s a good description and lots of pictures in the latest post on my blog. Let me know what you think – thanks for reading!

Beautiful legs, will you be carving the feet?

Betsy – Thanks for following along. It may take a bit of time before it’s complete, but don’t worry I’ll be keeping the Lumberjocks updated as I progress.

rpmurphy – Thanks for the compliments on the legs. They are coming along. Hopefully I will get enough time to complete the shaping soon. The feet will not be carved. The period/design of this piece has plain pad feet rather than ball & claw, trifed or slipper feet – though I’d like to try those at some point too!
