No matter how carefully your work has been sawn, routed, or turned, odds are good that it will require some degree of final sanding before it’s ready for a finish. While sanding flat surfaces is a relative cinch, sanding curves is a different story. Making fair curves scratch- and facet-free requires a different strategy and the right sanding accessories.
Incorporating curves into a piece of furniture can really delight the eye. The interplay between curved and straight lines can help ease transitions between sections and emphasize the overall form of a piece. Curves can also make elements appear visually lighter, more graceful, and even playful at times. Whether in the form of contoured edges, profiled moldings, or other shapely adornments, curves have a lot to offer your work.
