Creating Curved Flooring

Use a jigsaw and a router to cut the shape and laminate the thinner strips for a decorative accent

Go on site with flooring contractor and wood scientist Howard Brickman as he creates curved flooring with decorative laminations by employing a system of opposing wedges and cams. As Howard says, the curve looks so natural that you wouldn't think of doing it any other way.
