Three drawer hall cerdenza #2: Determining how to detail the legs

03-04-2018 09:54 PM by Oldtool | 9 comments »

For the better part of the last two weeks I’ve been attempting to determine how to apply a bead & set-back plane to the front legs, to look something like this: My first thought was to create the side beads the length of the leg, using a simple scratch stock. This proved to be feasible, as shown here: This proved easy when referencing the tool on the side of the practice leg, but then came the semicircular portion I wanted to use. Multiple attempts failed, as follows:First ...
