jim, that QA table is pretty impressive. i like the way the tops of the legs blend into the top. too bad you don’‘t have a shot looking down on the top. my expectation is that the top has sort of circular corners.right? like the circular corners project out beyond the rectangular lines of the top itself?

after typing the last sentence i thought i had better check to discsover whether what i stated is actually true. I checked vandal’s QA furniture manual and find that what i’m talking about is called a “porringer-top”, see page 116ff.

if any of you students start a QA project, show them this page, with background on the history of the QA leg: http://www.woodworkinghistory.com/glossary_cabriole_leg.htm#cabriole

when i get time i’ll upload some of my stuff

jim, don’t forget to send your email address: send it to ray@woodworkinghistory.com

if you liked the page on QA you might like this page too: http://www.woodworkinghistory.com/glossary_cyma_curve.htm

it’s on the origin and other history of the cyma curve, the key feature of QA legs

Hey Ray Thanks

Hey Bruce
The blurred photo is the same trick Lucille Ball used so you couldn’t tell how wrinkled and old she looks.:-))
It still did’nt work , the Yonger folks are saying who’s Lucille Ball.
