1. The beauty of using strips of wood is the ability to plane variable thicknesses to create asymmetric curves as well as. you can make several different versions with different tapers to obtain different curve rates.

    1. The problem I run into with wood is the density varies enough to not get a uniform curve. Aluminum is constant. I guess for some applications you might want an asymmetrical curve.

  2. Even coming from a shipbuilding and design background, I hadn’t thought of using curve or spline to layout those curves. By fixing the center and and curving it to your end of the curve at the side will produce a smooth curve. I personally like the curve produced when leaving the end of the spline free beyond the side point.
