I added a kerf jig on my miter gauge so now I wanted to make a project.
I came up with this idea….. a shelf with round corners.

Thats a clever way of doing that.
I have a postponed project, where I need to make something that looks like a jetpack, and wasn´t sure how I were to make the 2 cylinders, if not in solid wood and on a lathe.
This is the solution I have been looking for. Thanks

cool – where’s the picture of the finished shelf ? curious minds want to know how you finished the kerfs ??

none the less, good job – it’s not that easy to steam and bend w/o tragic resutls ( for me anyway )

Thanks, It is very easy to do. Remember when you cut to leave a thin web of around 1/8” making it easier to bend.
Good luck!

An excellent and well presented video on the construction and explanation of the process as it progressed.
Your final display and the illumination of it caught my attention.

Hoping you had made it also I went looking for it, sure enough there it was hidden away in a comment.

I think you should post it it as a project its worthwile even if originally as a halloween idea !
