Queen Anne Chair: Cabriole legs the feet

Right now I am one very happy lady, I chucked the leg back into the lathe ( I am very green at turning) to see if I could curve the bottom of the feet with my new favorite tool (nail filing pads). the leg on the left is done while the other one will be done soon, but I wanted to show you the difference, all I need to do now is to cut off the "handles" and finish the shaping of the legs by hand.

I shall never try wood work hence I doubly admire you and everyone does it. I'm in awe. Rosanna

Diamond coated needle files also make handing shaping tools for the lathe. I have owned a lathe for about 20 years but I turn so rarely I consider myself to be very green at it.
