Line Tool

With the straight line tool, draw a line and easily adjust its length by dragging the circles on either end.


Bezier Tool

Use the bezier tool to draw curved lines with two control points.

Simply drag the circles on either end to adjust the line length, and use the red square control points to modify the curve.


Catenary Tool

With the catenary line tool, draw a curved line with a single control point.

Easily adjust the line length by dragging the circles on either end, and modify the curve by moving the red square control point.

One of the things that makes Creative Woodturner truly unique is its use of the catenary curve. It is the curve that a hanging chain or cable naturally forms under its own weight when suspended between two points.

The catenary curve is a beautiful and intriguing shape that has been used for centuries in the design of vases and urns. It’s a curve that mimics the graceful, flowing lines found in nature, and it’s sure to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any woodturning project.

The catenary curve is sure to impress anyone who sees your finished creations.
