You can do it.
I have seen the work ahead of you and it , to me, is massive.The first set I cut was after my wife bought me my 10 inch band saw. This link helped me in the steps. I know he is pure hand tools. But the layout is the same. If you already know this stuff. Sorry. What I didn’t know was the way you lay them out so the grain pattern has a certain look on the knee of the leg.Good luck at the doctors office. And with that project.;)

That site has some interesting designs. I may try one of them just to see how it loks on there.I’ve done plenty of compaiund cutting on the bandsaw. I have just never done these type legs. I just have to find a design I like or can draw out. I have seen people who can free hand this sort of thing. That’s just not me though. I have to have at least a rough design to start with before I can “see it” in it’s three dimensional form.Thanks for the link though. I went and looked at it and already have found one design I think might look nice on there. I looked for two hours online earlier today and came up empty, and here you have led me to a design that quick. All I found earlier was very tall legs and some l liked that could be ordered for over $47 a piece.

Hey, while I was looking over that site you gave some more, I ran across a design that made me think of Chips. He’s another fellow Lumberjock here in Vicksburg. I have got to get you and KTMM to ride with me over to his shop one of these days. His shop is small. If we all went together we’d have to stand outside, but if you like my work you would be simply amazed at his.Anyway, there is a foot on that site that looks like an eagle’s talon holding a ball. It reminded me so much of one I seen at Chips shop that he had carved. His looked so realistic that I was scared to touch it. I thought the talon may let go of the ball and grab my ba…...No wait. This is a PG site.Anyway, I know I can’t do one like that on this one, but maybe if I start practicing carving one day (yea right!) I can put something like that on one.I apologize folks. I told ya’ll I was giddy over this project. Now I’m dreaming up all kinds of possibilities for it. Do any of you get this way over projects?

Great would love to meet him. I know very well about small shop. Oh I used to call that foot a claw and ball. But I had a guy tell me it’s Oriental. It’s supposed to be a dragon holding a pearl of wisdom. I like that better cause its kinda cool.
