The right way would be to glue up a big hunk of wood and bandsaw the curve out, sand smooth, and veneer with Quarter Sawn Oak. However in the modern shop this job is faster and simpler to achieve with a couple 3/8" thick layers of bendable plywood from Van Dyke's or another supplier. Cover one of the drawers with wax paper, apply glue to the two ply boards, place together and clamp onto the drawer front that is covered in wax paper. Remove from drawer front, this will make a fairly close copy which will remain in the shape that it was clamped befor the glue dried. (neat huh?) Now you are ready for the QSO veneer and the usual sides, bottom, etc. Good luck, James S.
