Default Queen Ann Padfoot Table Legs

Can any one tell me where I can get information, a good book or dvd on how to make Queen Ann Padfoot table legs. I have a very old cabinet with Ball & Claw legs, I would also like to learn how to make these as well......ya know I need the work.

HI Rob

I would suggest you just buy them out right, from Rockler for just one spot,they are real tricky to make,,alot of band saw work and then hours and hours of hand chisel work,,with one or two for the fire place

Hi Rob

I would say go for it,,,I will say Norm A. (of NYWS) did one on his show, it will help making yours, but I would still suggest you pickup just one from Rockler so you have a pattern to go by,,I know you said you have a cabinet with them but I can tell you it's not the same as one in your hands to set up the cut on the band saw.. not to say anything about the ball foot. Norm's plan did come with a full size pattern and the video, you will see him do the foot. ,,,, I don't recall the name of the plane but you can find it on his web site,using the serach tool..
