More Deft Ways to utilize the Band saw
Follow the lines for the remaining cuts, remove the waste pieces, as-well as voila — a leg emerges! Creative along with productive, yes, but this is also just plain enjoyment. Final truing together with smoothing of the curves are done with hand tools.
Curved legs for tables with chests are great design opportunities plus the band saw excels at executing them. This is particularly so for compound curves, which are those that curve in two dimensions. Though a step-by-step instruction is beyond the scope of this post, here is an overview to show what the band saw can do. The photo below shows the layout for a gently curved leg penciled onto a squared-up blank. Using a template, the shape has been drawn on adjacent faces. actually, at this stage, the lines you see on top of the blank are kerfs. The waste material has been taped back on using bits of double-stick tape. This is necessary because the initial cuts remove some of the layout lines, also create curved surfaces that would be awkward to rest on the saw’s table for subsequent cuts.
