I am planning a writing desk and my wife would like something like this first one. I don't have anywhere near the skill to build that. But I was looking at the legs on this more rustic desk and I think I like them better. They look like a swan kissing the earth. Forgive the poetry. I like the way the leg seems more centered than most of these queen anne style legs are. I like them better.

Thoughts?

The construction of both tables is pretty similar. The ornate parts of the first table is often metal hardware which you might be able to locate. The legs on the second table could just be cut out on a bandsaw and sanded. The skirt also appears to have a rounded shape. I wish the picture was clearer. It's hard to tell if the wood is a burl or has a faux finish.
