« Part 2: Preparing the Legs Part 3 of Barnsley Reproduction Build series Part 4: Starting Chip Carving »

My next task is to chip carve the bevels on the four legs. The diamonds are 1 1/64 across the diagonals. The 1/64 was needed to ensure that the top and the bottom were a half diamond. Since the carved area is 25 3/8 long, by carving 25 diamonds each a little over 1” I avoided a partial diamond.

I printed the pattern and glued the paper on to the legs and plan on just carving through. Since my printer can only print up to 11 inches, each pattern was made of three pieces. I enlisted my wife to help cut and paste the patterns onto the 2 areas on each leg. Next is to start carving in the next post.
