Queen Anne Chair: Cabriole legs and knee brackets



One thing is sure, dressmaker's pins are quite handy for miniatures too.



I used some in gluing the side rails to the front to keep everything in place. I used the pattern as a guide in gluing everything together.



Well, it is starting to look like a chair!!!! The right leg still needs its knee brackets and a lot more shaping. The back isn't glued on yet, that will only happen when all the stretcher bars are finished, I had a mental block for woodturning today, so hopefully that will happen tomorrow.



I still need to refine the rebate where the upholstered seat will fit in. In this picture you can see how flat the top part of the right leg still is, a lot of carving and sanding still to be done.
