This was my first piece that used the joinery technique of complementary curves.
I didn’t see any point in dicking around with just little bits here and there so I went full on instead.
One of the advantages to this style of joinery is that it allows you to use boards that may not be absolutely perfect, meaning that you can design your template to account for bad and unusable pieces in any particular board.
The dark timber in this piece is Brown Bloodwood that I got off of my neighbour. I’ve never used it before and I wish my photography was better because it is an absolutely stunning piece and finished like glass.
