Great Jon. So If I understand You made 5.2MM 3 ply plywood into XX 2 ply Plywood is that correct. It inside layers was going the length of your cylinder and the original top ply was going around.

Karson, that’s correct. The resulting material is not very strong, but the string tension loads are carried by the two 2×6 oak side rails. The only pressure to get to the cylinders is the slight down bearing from the bridges, and that is equally distributed around the whole surface. I first tried the 2 ply on the rope tension drum I have listed on projects. I just run it through my planer, and it worked great! I have built a lot of curved pieces now using the stuff…sometimes relaminating it with urethane and vacuum bagging it.

rikkor,

You got this wannabe luthier’s attention. Keep us up on your progress.

wannabe luthier? I saw your guitar…I think you are one, and a good one at that! I on the other hand, am lazy and don’t sand as much as I should, don’t wait for stuff to dry before assembly, and I don’t have the patience to fish either. I probably shouldn’t be doing woodwork…

That’s just wrong on many levels.

Have your say...
