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.
