Default Need help with feet for clock

I am thinking about making this clock for my son for Christmas. Not sure yet of the wood I will use, but I have the orginal clock plans which do not include the feet in the picture below. Another woodworker made the one pictured and I am not sure how he made the feet.

Can anyone put me on track how to go about making feet like these? I think they are done with a router, but I'm not even sure of that

Hey Bob, that looks like a very nice project, I will be watching with something similar in mind for James and Nikki first anniversary.

Hi Jerry,

Actually the clock is pretty straight forward, but those feet have me puzzled. I have never attempted feet of any kind, so that part will be a challange for sure.

Hi Bob

I would make them like this
Good time to fire up the new scroll saw to make the pattern and holding fixture

Cut one pattern on the scroll saw and flip the stock to cut the rest on the router table so they all match up,,done with the brass guide in place or pattern bit..

the last 3 pictures

Hey Bob,

This may sound so simple that it may not work. Take some cove moulding cut two edges to 45 Degrees, glue them together and you have one decorative foot.

Bob,

Take a look at Van Dyke's Restoration. They may have a "foot" to match so that you can copy it.

Hi Joe,

I thought along those lines also, but not sure it would give it the total look as in the picture. I may experiment with the idea more. Thanks for the idea.

Ken,

It is how to go about copying that trips me up. Everything I do is a copy as I have no imagination of my own
