Learn basic wood-bending methods
Wood is usually considered a stiff, unyielding material, but over the centuries, woodworkers have found some ingenious ways to bend wood to make what they wanted -- items as diverse as a delicate violin, a flexible pair of skis, and a graceful, comfortable chair.
In this collection of 35 articles from Fine Woodworking magazine's classic black-and-white era, craftsmen explain basic wood-bending methods and how they've put them to use in their shops. You'll also learn how you can make the tools and acquire the skills you need for successful bending in your own projects.
