Topic tags/keywords: resource question bandsaw shaping

I have been asked to make a table like this.

I believe that the base and under table parts curves needs to be done with a bandsaw. Since the parts are 6”x8”, I don’t have a bandsaw that is large enough.

If any LJ’er that is around Austin, TX can help. I would appreciate if you would contact me.

I would also appreciate if any of you have an idea of a way to do this without a bandsaw.

Bowsaw by hand? Too much work cutting them by hand for me, maybe you are younger or more ambitious?
I can’t help otherwise as I live in Washington and all my tools are still in storage.
Good luck!

You could rough out the curves by hand then use a drawknife/spokeshave/chisels. You could even leave the tools marks if the client likes that style (I certainly would!). Even a small inexpensive bandsaw could make quick work of this, though. Best of luck. That’s kind of a cool little table.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Bertha, I have an old Craftsman 10 inch tabletop bandsaw but it only has about 4 inches of blade, and these parts are 8 inches wide. I don’t see how I could cut the curves on this bandsaw.

Thanks,
Bob
