Ball and claw foot desk

Postby CJRyan » Thu Dec 29, 2022 12:38 am

Hi all, it's been a while since I contributed any content.
Like everything I do, I could have added more detail. I've seen many of these desks. My Grandfather owned one. I've got the one my Mother had, and I modeled it from that.
A big thanks to Dave R I was ready to tear my hair out trying to get the tape measure tool to scale correctly, and I have little hair left to tear out.

It's been so long since I posted here that I probably didn't do it correctly.
Oh well! Happy new year all!!

Great looking model ! :thumb: Have always been amazed how this style of furniture was first produced back in the hand tool days.

Very nice work. I'm happy if I helped you retain a few strands of hair. ;)

Very nice job. I'm curious: How did you model the ball-and-claw feet?
