Woodworking Technique

Bent Lamination
Create curved project parts the easy way with strips of wood, glue, and a form.

We all know that curves are pleasing to the eye. The question for woodworkers is: What’s the best way to make them? In some cases, you can cut an arching shape from a solid piece of stock. Or you can build up a blank with mitered pieces, and then cut it into a curve. But more often it’s best to bend wood to get the shape you want. Why? Because bending usually produces a stronger, better-looking result and wastes much less wood.
