Designing a Chair #3: Chair III: 1st Bent Lamination

10-25-2014 09:22 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

Last night I grabbed some particle board that I have in the shop and made a bending jig for the chair back. The chairs are for the table I made for our church. Although I’m glad I had the particle board to use instead of ‘good’ plywood, I got really frustrated with my band saw while cutting out the bending form. Lately I’ve been getting along with my bandsaw but this was miserable. I cut the curve out of two boards and the switched to my jig saw because it̵...

Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul

Helpful Jigs #3: Using the lamination jig

01-12-2014 05:19 PM by rhett | 1 comment »

This video has next to zero production value but is a cool process none the less. The strips of ash are dry fit in the jig to get the initial bend, then glued and put back in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zd8rwZ4gQI&list=HL1389547025&feature=mh_lolz Hope it motivates others to try something new.

Wood Handlebars for my bike

08-07-2012 02:47 AM by davemoorefurniture | 18 comments »

Hello again. I recently discovered while working through problems on a big bench commission that when I soak and prebend material intended for bent lamination, there is little to no spring-back in the finished part. What is spring-back you ask? It’s when a part is released from a form either steam bent or bent lamination and the part doesn’t quite hold the exact radius or curve. It’s generally not a problem as long as your form accounts for the slight difference. So, in...

Poppin' Fresh Vacuum Press

03-07-2012 10:35 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

I Just Had To Share The Excitement! I was getting ready to pull a project out of the vacuum press and I decided this would be the perfect time to shoot a test video for my new audio equipment. Besides that, popping the vacuum press open is one of my favorite moments in the shop – and now you get to share in it! In this video, I do not get specifically into the step-by-step of bent lamination and using the vacuum press, but it is highly informative. You will get to see the actual m...

A Rough Day Shooting Video

02-28-2012 04:20 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 42 comments »

It Ain’t Always Easy… I have been pretty anxious to get out more video, especially after all the effort I have invested in the infrastructure for creating better videos. Well things did not go smooth for this video. I started out by setting a record for the number of takes to get a clean 1st scene. I don’t know why my mind really kept dropping off. (I have a lot of crap rattling around up there.) The next thing to happen was that after I got rolling on the video rec...

Time lapse Woodworking #11: Rocking Chair - Back Brace Bent Lamination

02-22-2011 05:11 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 10 comments »

In this time lapse video I am gluing up 4 flexible back braces for a custom wooden rocking chair. A back brace is built using 4 layers each layer being about 2.2mm thick, the top or front layer is Birdseye Maple the rest are Walnut. This chair will be Black Canadian Walnut thus the the Birdseye Maple will give a attractive and interesting contrast to the rest of the chair. We make sure to cut the fronts and backs from a single piece and keep everything in order so in the end we have a beautif...
