If you work with the straight lines a Sterling Tool Works French "Roubo" Curve set is a fun and intuitive way to break into a world of beautiful curvilinear furniture design. Chris Kuehn, founder of Sterling Tool Works, has designed this set of three 304 stainless steel curves at a scale specifically suited to furniture. This is the largest set of French curves we've come across, and their sturdy .060" thickness and solid-steel heft make them a pleasure to use.

The set of three curves is similar to the set you'll find on nearly any drafting table - including ours. Originally French Curves were developed to draft specific geometric shapes such as parabola, or compound curves. Now days CAD programs are a better and faster choice for mathematically accurate drawing. But the French curve has remained an important tool for designers and craftsmen because it allows for the simple, elegant drafting of sculptural details, with a hands on approach suited to working through a design. The Sterling Roubo Curves large size makes them particularly fun to use, and great for laying out directly onto a workpiece. You can even clamp them in place. If you're interested in taking your furniture design in a new direction, these curves can show the way.
