How do you put a round-over on a leg with as many curved and non-flat surfaces as those on this chair (hint: it’s not all done with a router)?

Take a look at the most recent post on my journey to build a Sculpted Rocking Chair. This time I tackled the front legs and initial shaping of all four of the legs. As a result, it’s really starting to look like a chair!

Todd and Gerry,

Thanks. I’ve finally had a bit more time to spend on the chair. It’s getting there!
