There are a lot of different ways to make a quilt rack. For this one I wanted to explore curves and keep the overall piece as simple as possible. (The quilts should be the stars of the show.) This will give you a chance to try bending some wood: it’s a pretty easy process and one you can use in lots of woodworking projects.

If you would like to try making this one, here’s a template of the s-curve.

Steve: I used the same technique to make handles for several boxes I’ve made. cool trick ..
My form was much smaller and thus easier to do.
None the less a slick idea.

I’ve probably said it before but I love how simple your projects are. Thanks for the inspiration.

I just looked at your post and the first words out of my mouth were
“Woah… really cool Steve..”

And that was before I viewed the video.
The video was really informative too. I liked that you explained the reason for bent lamination versus cutting it from a solid piece of wood.

What was your inspiration for the design?

This is a perfect example of ‘Folks that say it can’t, or shouldn’t, be done should step aside while others(You) get it done.’. Maybe Oak would be better, but this is what you do. You get it done with whatever suits you, pine or otherwise. Very well done Steve.

Great design, Steve. I built a rocker using bent lamination. After a bit of research (help from people on LJ) I used plastic resin glue, which works perfectly for bent lamination.

now you can get in form with out the need for jogging …. :-)

one thing though if you once want to make a fishing net that way
you need to cut twice in the form since you need to leeve space enoff to the wood
between the two parts of the form

try to make a 4 inch thick piece in your last form and you will see what I meen :-)

one of the isues is .... the inner and outer radius is different from each other

thanks for sharing
