Video: How to Make a Cabriole Leg

video
I'm just learning how to use the new Flip camera to do Web-posted videos. It's pretty cool!

Here, in video form, are the steps to making a cabriole leg. Whether you're building a table or a chair, the steps are pretty much the same. The video is about 7 minutes long. (Sorry it's so long, and filled with so many ums and ahs!) I cut down the video as much as I could, and in the process, when the software condensed the video even more for Web production, it cut off some of my words. Oops! Obviously I have still more to learn...

This is an amazingly useful video -- thank you so much for making it and posting it. And I think your presentation is great! Very clear.

I'm so glad it was helpful for you! I find cabriole legs one of those delights of woodworking - you never get to see the actual piece until it's all cut out and the other eight pieces surrounding it fall away.

Há tempos venho procurando um vídeo desses... estou muito feliz em ter finalmente desvendado o mistério das pernas cabriole. Não tenho a serra de fita, e não entendi o som do video, posso usar uma serra de mão? teria mais detalhes dos cortes para me enviar por escrito? Agradeço a gentileza e parabenizo seu lindo trabalho.
Sou do Brasil, em breve meu blog estará no ar com minhas minis.
