The best method depends on the result you want to achieve. Steam bending will result in less wood wasted but is more or less accurate and requires some specific equipment and energy. Cutting from a solid piece will use a lot of wood but sometimes, for a shallow curve is very nice and accurate. Laminating will apply for more contemporary furniture and if well planed for spring back will give a strong result with however the need for templates and a lot of glue and clamps.

Wha is your project ?
