chippendale knee carving
« on: April 21, 2010, 07:23:45 AM »
If anyone's interested in a lot of shots of knee carving being done, I've been been putting it in my blog on my site. I'd copy it here if I knew how......Al

Very nice, and thank you. It's printing out as I type this.
Any chance you could post the pattern for tracing?

Howard- As I designed the pattern, I'd hate to put it out as an original period pattern, but I'm happy to share it with that understanding. I purposely omitted actual gouge sizes, since they'll vary depending on the size of leg. This was on a 16/4 bed leg, so it may be a little big for other apps. But that said, I'll post the gouge sizes so you'll have somewhere to start. I'm finishing the carving today and will get the sizes before I put them away.
Glad you like it-Al
