Objects made in wood stand and fall with the right grain orientation. Is there anything more appealing, than symmetric grain structure in a piece of furniture. But how do you get a result which suits our sense of beauty? We would like to offer some practical tips to everyone who got puzzled over timber selection before.
Who hasn't come across the following:
You are looking at a plank of timber and wonder where to start so that after ripsawing the desired look results.
At first, ask yourself: what do I want to achieve?
Our first example shows a stool in two variations, one with tapered legs and one with curved legs.
Stool with tapered legs
Stool with curved legs
Both stool are also provided within our DICTUM-Workshop program. Have a look at our Woodworking courses.
Example: Tapered Legs
Starting with tapered legs, we are looking at the end grain of our plank.
On principle there are two varieties:
1. Plain-sawn board
2. Quarter-sawn board
Here we show you the two effects that are created with different direction of growth rings.
Example: Curved legs
With the growth rings diagonal all we have to decide is the direction of the curve.
