As Chris from Sterling Took Works says, the 'Roubo Curves® are metal french curves on “steroids”'.
Unlike french curves purchased at a craft store, the scale of the Roubo Curves® are meant for furniture. At 18", 9" and 8" you can layout directly on your workpiece and since they are made from 304 stainless steel, you can even clamp them down.
This annual magazine celebrates the preservation, research and restoration of historic furniture. Its multi-disciplinary approach brings together the perspectives of furniture makers, conservators and scholars to span woodworking past and present, with a special focus on pre-industrial tools and methodology.
