Exploring an old, obscure band saw technique, Nick discovers some new magic. The undulating legs on these "melting shelves" were each made with just two band saw cuts, then joined to the shelves and apron with some remarkably ordinary table saw work. Although the results are spectacular, the methods used to make this unique piece involve nothing more than sawing some curves and making a few crosscuts. As magic goes, this particular bit of woodworking prestidigitation is remarkably simple and straightforward to conjure.
And if you’d like to try this bit of bandsaw magic yourself, Nick has collected all the necessary spells in a project plan available at our Workshop Companion Store: https://workshopcompanion.selz.com/item/melting-display-shelves . You can also read about this band saw technique and many, many others in his book, "Using the Band Saw," available at https://workshopcompanion.selz.com/item/using-the-bandsaw .
