I’m building a chair for my DW. You can find the blog here.
The horizontal slats in the back of the chair are curved. What is the best way to accomplish the curve (1) bend an existing piece of 3/4 stock or (2) get a 8/4 piece and use the BS to cut the curve.
(1) I have the wood already roughed out, however I have no idea on how to bend it. I’m guessing I would have to soak it in water and then make a jig to bend the wood.
(2) I have the BS and a resaw blade . . . I just have to pick up the wood.
I’m thinking option #2 would be the quicker one.
