Waterfalling

We use this term when describing a design where by the timber is cut and joined on an angle making the timber appear to bend down on itself thus creating a waterfall effect that reveals the continuation of the timber grain.

When handcrafting furniture using this design technique, long lengths of timber are required. These boards are glued together with floating tenons and then cut on a 45 deg angle and re-joined again using floating tenons ensuring optimal strength.

The result illustrates the magnificent splendor of natural grain found in some timbers.
