Ogee Bracket feet blind dovetailed

To me there was evidence that this desk had ogee bracket feet . Any time I make ogee bracket feet they are blind dovetailed together. Not all old feet were done this way. Most of the time they were mitered and butt jointed. The back feet are half blind dovetailed. I was taught to build furniture second to none and I apply that to my restoration as well. In another post I will show how to make blind dovetailed ogee bracket feet.

    I have never been satisfied with the traditional spline and block method when building bracket feet. Your dovetail method has won me over. Thank You for sharing.
