Craft a Curved Wall Cabinet Photos by Jacques Breau; Illustration by Len Churchill The shape of this cabinet is symmetrical and makes use of the same curve on the sides and front.Having selected wood for the project, I proceeded to make a full-size, top-view drawing.
INFO: DIFFICULTY - 4/5, LENGTH/TIME - 4/5, COST - 3/5, SPECIAL TECHNIQUES - CURVED PARTS, VENEERING Bent laminationsThe bending form was cut on the bandsaw from a solid piece of wood and trued up by hand, taking care to not introduce any twist into the form.
I kept the off-cut to use as a caul during clamping and as a curved fence for my router table.I laid up the curved rails for the door and sides using five 1/8" plies and epoxy.Once the epoxy was fully cured, I removed the clamps and cleaned up the convex face of the lamination, and ensured that the face was flat and free of twist along its entire surface.
I then jointed one edge, and cut the other edge parallel on the table saw.The inside face then gets checked to ensure that it is parallel to the outer face.If the form and laminations are carefully prepared, this should take no time at all.
