Good news: We have 250 more sets of Design Curves in stock in our store. They are $37 a set plus shipping.
If you make chairs or curvaceous furniture, you’ll find these curves a nice addition to your tool kit. They are designed for woodworking – not drafting. Unlike drafting curves, ours don’t have the weird ink ledge, which is designed to prevent ink from smudging. The ink ledge also makes the curves less accurate (thank you, parallax).
Plus, ours are wood, not plastic. Well, actually they are a seven-layer bamboo ply (bamboo is a grass). They are durable, stay fairly flat and the world ain’t gonna run out of bamboo.
These curves are laser-cut here in Covington, Ky. Then I sand them on both faces to #220 grit to remove all the burn marks and dress the edges by hand to remove the extra carbon from the laser-cutting.
In other Crucible news, we are working on our next batch of lump hammers. We hope to have another group ready in the next week or so. Stay tuned for more news.
Also, if you have a question about Crucible Tool stuff, be sure to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org (not to Lost Art Press). We have different people managing each site, and we want to make sure we get your question answered promptly.
