Making a Curved Table Apron

Success in furniture making is normally a result of good planning and preparation. Many aspects of the craft are accomplished with the help of well-made jigs. Sometimes the jig can take longer to constuct than the part it is designed to help you make. This was the case with two bent laminated aprons I recently made for the ends of a Walnut dining table. Once the jig was completed and the materials prepared, the creation of the apron was not too difficult. Accurately fitting it to the table is, however, a tricky process, but that's another story.

The following video shows you the jig and how to bend the apron:
