Fabricating a Carved Settee Leg
them to the leg, as you can see in the first picture. You can see in the second picture that we have taken some of the excess wood off and have drilled holes along the inside curve of the leg to make hand carving a bit easier. Next a template of the leg shape was attached to the leg, for more refined removal of excess wood. You can see in the 4th picture that all the excess wood has been removed and the fine shaping is ready to begin.
The leg carving turned out very well. It looks almost exactly like the other two on the settee. Now it is off to the finishing department. It is their job to make the epoxy line disappear and of course to stain and finish the entire settee. It is not particularly often that we have to do this kind of work, but fortunately we have the guys with the skill to pull it off. Do you have a job you think is impossible? Bring it to us, clearly this job was not enough of a challenge, so your impossible repair might be just the challenge they need!
