For those of you interested in Google SketchUp for drawing cabinets and furniture, I have just released Part 5A "An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial". This tutorial teaches you how to draw cabriole legs like those below.
I also have a beginner's tutorial series which you can find on my Google SketchUp page. These tutorials are free and include a MS Word version which can be downloaded.
The topics covered on this site include activities in which there exists the potential for serious injury
or death. WoodWorkingTalk.com DOES NOT guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information contained
on this site. Always use proper safety precaution and reference reliable outside sources before attempting any construction or remodeling
I might learn how to draw them, but who is going to teach me how to make them?
I do not have those kind of skills.
I doubt that. Can you turn the pad with a lathe? Can you operate a band saw? Can you use a file? If yes to these you have the skills. There are hundreds of articles on the Internet on making cabriole legs and the skills required are minimal. Norm Abram did a show on it once. They really are easy.
