Outstanding work on that claw and ball leg! It’ll look amazing if you ever do a Queen Anne piece!

That is awesome, I have watched how to do this many time but haven’t tried to pull it off.

The hardest part was making the ball round, and imagining that 1/8 of the top and bottom of it are not seen. Sharp carving knives are a must, of course.
