Here is an entertainment unit I built for my sister. It is made of ash and is unfinished as she wanted to do that herself. This was my first attempt at cabriolet legs and I which I learned how to do from several fine woodworking articles. I did not have a bandsaw at the time so I had to rough out the blanks with a jig saw which took forever and left the legs very rough. Then there was a ton of sanding done with a 60 grit belt sander and then lots of work with a rasp to get the final shape. I did use full extension slides on the drawers which is not very traditional but the drawers will be used every day so I went for function. Thanks for looking.

Cabriolet legs are a bit of work but I think they are worth it. Yours looks super; amazing that you did it without a bandsaw !

Adam,

Nice workmanship; the cabriole legs look fantastic. I’ve only made two of them. They were so much work that I decided to put straight legs in the back! Will you add a photo after your sister finishes it?
