This is a very simple way to add a unique design to your builds. I've used it in my coat rack as you can see in the picture! My father taught me this a while ago and he doesn't remember where he found it. I am in no way a pro wood worker, but I do like to build things!
Step 1: Materials
- Squared piece of wood
Largest that I've worked and has come out successful is a 4" X 4"
-Band Saw (easiest in my opinion)
-Clamps (to hold your piece together while it dries)
Step 2: Tape and make the first cut
As you make your first cut down the length of your piece begin to curve the cut. You can make as many curves as you feel comfortable making. It does get to be a little tight though if you're trying to fit more than two bends within a foot.
Step 3: Make the second cut
Now you cut it one more time, fitting in the curves that you want. There really is no science to the curves. It will look awesome without any measurements. Just cut it the way you want it to look.
Step 4: Stick the pieces together
Then add the glue and clamp them down.
