This is my attempt to carve a ball and claw leg. I ordered a plaster of paris cast from Mary May. This helped so much, just to have a reference to look at. All in all it was a fun project with a large learning curve. As always, no power tools involved.

Nice detail on the feet! To date all of my carvings turn out to be fodder for the fire pit. Keep up the good work!

Those oversize legs are awesome. That table is one of those pieces that nearly everyone will stop to look at.
