Building furniture with straight lines and square corners is a great accomplishment. But, when you throw things a curve … wow.
Online woodworking how-to guru Al Navas of Sandal Woods Blog built a table with some sweet curved legs a few years back. While there were many compliments, there were many more that came in about how he built those legs. Al used the tried-and-true method of bent lamination – an easy way to make the curve without having to create a steam box.
To answer those e-mails, Al created a tutorial page that takes readers from layout to form preparation to resawing the stock to the think strips required to make the lamination. Even if you don’t want to build a project with flowing curves, it’s still a joy to watch Al go through the process – and see the results!
