Parametric furniture can built in several ways, but by far the fastest is to build my Modern Parametric Bench featured in the December 2019 issue of Popular Woodworking with a CNC. The size of your CNC will dictate your approach. Smaller CNCs or Shaper Origin owners might be better off CNCing out a pattern and shaping the parts with a router. Larger CNC owners will want to machine their parts. The DXF file contains both the offset pattern and the actual part. The PDF file is the basic information for anyone building this project. For the spine, follow the concepts in the article to create your own.
The December 2019 issue of Popular Woodworking magazine features my article building a modern parametric bench using a new furniture making method: spine and rib furniture construction. You can build it with a CNC, a Shaper Origin hand-held CNC or with just a router and jig saw thanks to a new shaping technique. Look for the issue to get the whole story and follow this link to see my PWW blogs posts on additional details, tips and methods for making your own parametric bench.
