Here is a lowboy I made for my wife for Christmas but have been unable to post as the hardware was backordered several weeks. It is a modified version of the one featured in the June 2010 issue of Popular Woodworking (by Glen Huey) I used pad foot instead of the drake foot in the article and added couple finials (my wife calls them udders). This was my first try at cabriolet legs and was pretty happy with the results but plan on changing the template to add a little more curve to the basic pattern. Drawer fronts are all one piece, using the Incra jig for cutting the dovetails. Finish is wash coat of Zinslers Schelac, General Finishes latex cherry stain/dype, and several coats of poly and paste wax. Hardware from Lee Valley. Pictures show it to be more red than actual color. Enjoyable and easy plan for period furniture, thinking of doing another in walnut.
