This torpedo-shaped, multisided leg is the signature design of Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann. Woodworker Aaron Radelow details how to make a Ruhlmann leg by breaking construction down into manageable steps: creating a full-scale drawing of the eight leg segments, cutting the legs with the use of a jig, making the angled leg segments, adding veneer and inlay, and assembling the leg.
