I'm using Google SketchUp to design a bureau (or buroe as Chippendale spells it) actually it's a slightly modified version of the left hand piece in the Director on Plate XLII. Anyway, I've really been struggling with an exact design for the bracket feet. I kind of like the ones shown on the left hand foot on the left hand bureau and the right hand foot on the right bureau but they're hard to see in detail. I like to think (whether it's true or not) that everything in period furniture starts with proportion and design (orders of architecture, golden ratio and all that). I keep going back to the George Walker video and the way he designs the bracket foot. I've attached a basic design (not sure where I got it) that I've been trying to reconcile with George Walker and the piece but it just isn't working. Rather than just eyeballing it, I'm looking for any design or layout rules anyone has to help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
