Cabriole Leg

Cabriole legs are the epitome of 18th Century furniture. Making them is much easier than it looks. And in this three-hour class, you’ll go from design to cabriole leg.




Some of the skills covered in this class are:

  • How to layout a cabriole leg
  • Turning a pad foot
  • Methods for sawing cabriole legs
  • Shaping with edged tools, files, and rasps

This course will take place on Sunday, January 31, 2021, from 9:00 am EST until approximately noon.

I’ll open the virtual shop at 8:00 am EST in order to ensure everyone has their technology (internet connection, camera, and mic) set up properly. I’ll start design lessons at 9:00 am EST. More specific details about the schedule are outlined in the class-confirmation email that immediately follows your successful registration.

For this class you’ll need:

  • An internet connection in your shop (phones work, but broadband wifi is better, hard-wired ethernet is best)
  • A webcam or cell phone with video/audio capabilities
  • A tripod or method of holding and aiming your camera while keeping it steady
  • A power supply for your camera that can last the entire class

You’ll also need the following.
