The s-curve legs and ball and claw feet are the standout features of Tommy’s Chippendale footstool. Many furniture makers get defeated by the ball and claw, but in this episode Tommy stops by master carver Will Neptune’s shop to get tips on an incredibly easy way to break it down. Will provides instruction and shares his carving experience and skill with viewers. Tommy then returns to his studio to speak with Steve Brown of the North Bennet Street School.
