Wing Chair Documentary (shaping ball and claw)

The cabriole leg is shaped mostly with a Nicholson 49 file. I periodically give the leg shape as I complete the ball and claw to visualise the complete leg.

The ball is shaped almost completely with a 1/2" bench chisel.

My hands really react with mahogany(turning black). If this happens to you, soap and water won't work well; use lemon juice.

The talon is completed.

The ball and claw is complete.
