Cabriole legs – one last item
I let down my guard for one minute and the power tools come out! (All kidding aside, a rotating sander is a great tool for finishing up the top of the foot)
One last consideration: Thinning the front of the ankle tends to “push the foot forward”, while thinning the back of the ankle tends to “pull the foot backward”. Either method of shaping is fine, just remember to be consistent on all four feet.
Et voila! Les holding the finished goods. (Thanks Les)
So next we’ll take on the mortising, the rails and the knees. Leave the excess on the post. Stay tuned…
