Contour Cutting

Contour cutting is the process of cutting intricate curves, shapes, and patterns in materials using a band saw or other cutting tool. This cutting technique requires a flexible blade, precise control, and, in some cases, specialized equipment like a contour band saw or CNC machine. Contour cutting is commonly used in woodworking, metalworking, and patternmaking to create decorative elements, custom parts, or intricate shapes for various applications.
