Here’s the matching lowboy to go with the highboy. This was not part of my original plans but a result of a design change. I made these legs for the highboy but decided I didn’t like the thickness of the ankles, (they needed to be beefier for a highboy). Since these were already made, and otherwise I liked them, I decided to also build a lowboy to match the highboy.

Hi Bob;

Another great project!

I kind of believe you wouldn’t have much trouble with ball and claw feet. Your skills are certainly up to the task!

Maybe at the next picnic, we could go over making them. Or if you want, come over on a Saturday, and we’ll make one.

Again, excellent workmanship!!
