Beautiful Leg Fabrication for a Chest
This leg belongs to a lovely chest, which had lost one of it's own original ones. The chest has delicate mother-of-pearl inlay on the front drawer and very nice veneer work overall. It was a pity that the leg was missing! So we went to work making a duplicate leg, so that the chest would not only be functioning, but visually appealing as well. Here you can se our fabrication in two different stages. The first photo still has pencil marks all over to help guide our craftsman's hands. The second photo is almost completed, it still needs to be attached and colored to match the rest of the chest. I wonder if you would be able to tell me which leg was new, and which leg was old, once those final steps are done?
