Wooden Coaster Design & Ideas #4: Carl Friedrich Gauss distinguishes between three types of curved surfaces, single curved – neutral (cylindrical), and double curved – negative (hyperboloid) and positive (spherical).
Curved surfaces are very attractive, especially negative double curved surfaces, but also very complicated to perform. What’s interesting about them in constructive terms is the increase in stiffness and load capacity as the surface is bent in one and two directions.

We take out the resulting pieces from the “oven” so we can finish it with wood stain. We sand it one more time, using fine sandpaper. This is all done manually – so all of those small imperfections hint that even though it’s laser cut, there are human hands that took over.
