I made this bookcase for my Step Daughter who loves Asian art and design. Woods used are African mahogany and bloodwood. The side panels are veneered with shop sawn veneers I’m not so sure I achieved the look I had in-visioned at the drawing board but she is happy with it. Close examination of the face frame reveals that the it thins toward the center as well as having a large gentle arc along the edges. The second photo shows the jig I constructed to sculpt the face frame and create a precise and consistent arc. The work piece is first rough cut at the bandsaw to reduce the work required by the router.
