DESCRIPTION
By Lon Schleining
Linden Publishing, 2002
Soft cover, 8.5" x 11", 208 pages

There is a certain beauty in curved work, a sinuous handrail or the serpentine front on a chest. These design elements never fail to enhance the overall appeal of a room or a piece of furniture.

It is always easier to stay within the bounds of conventional geometry, straight lines, right angles, and plumb. Once you enter the world of single and double curvature you will undoubtedly test your level of knowledge and workmanship. This book will be of immense help to both the novice and the professional in demystifying curved work in wood.

In this book you will learn:
  • The correct method of constructing a steam box
  • The benefits of making full size plans
  • Why laminations fail
  • Compression straps, what they are and why you need them
  • Coping and springback
  • Proper and safe shaper setup
  • When to laminate. When to steambend. When to mill.
