LOML has requested a lingerie/jewelry armoire, and among her criteria for said “honey-do” are curved drawer fronts. I’ve never done any sort of wood-bending, but have always been looking forward to a project that would utilize it.
From my understanding, the three major ways to go would be to either cut vertical kerfs on the back of standard plywood, use bending ply and veneer over a form, or glue-lamination.
I don’t currently have a vacuum press, but this project might be the perfect excuse to get one. “But honey, I needed it for your super special curved drawer fronts!”
I’d love to see your projects that utilize curved drawer fronts, doors, aprons, etc. In particular, aside from the actual curved part, I’m curious how you went about joinery (e.g. drawer front to drawer sides, etc.). Any other related tips, advice, etc. would be appreciated!
