Making Curved Assemblies and Moldings

Post by raymacke »

Since so many pieces of a boat are curved I thought this link might be of interest. The project itself is not the point but rather the method of constructing curved blocking using finger joints is somewhat unique and could have applications for trim work on boats. Also, at the bottom of the page there is a link to making Curved Moldings using spline joints that might also be helpful.

If you haven't before looked at the author's web site you might want to check it out. For me woodgears.ca is the most fascinating woodworking site I have found.
