1700’s Chippendale reproduction, upholstered seat and ball and claw feet. Made in solid cherry.
over 20hrs per leg hand carving and shaping. another 8 or 10 hours carving skirt. I have always loved the ball and claw foot, really wanted to make some so here they are. I went into it thinking man how am I going to make a nice round ball and make it look nice? That is not the hardest part, for me it was the talons, the ball turned out to be fairly easy. By the time I got to the fourth one the ball was a piece of cake, the talons were still kicking my you know what.. I am real happy with how it turned out though, and would do it again in a minute..
I really though this was posted already, but its not on my project page, so if its shows up twice you will know why,, I thought that I had uploaded it already but I guess I lost it.. not the first time I have lost it…..
