Alright so this is the build for the other two main pieces. The first is the bottom support that everything extends from the back. I realized just how strong these laminate bends are relative to the individual pieces and wow, the bend strength is amazing. So here’s the form/piece for that guy.
It came out pretty good in my opinion. All the glue lines are nice and clean and it’ll be ready with just a little bit of sanding. The next step which had to wait until now is the arched back support, which had to be made once the base and the back support were already built. For this form, I just made a secondary parallel curve in order to keep the clamping pressure perpendicular that which was much easier than drilling the holes out, and I felt like this prevent the outer laminate layer from wanting to drive up and out of the glue up.
This was done today so it’ll be a day or two before I pull it off the form. This afternoon I spent some time drafting up the design for the neck guitar holder at the very top. It will be mortise and tenon’ed into the main guitar support and will be lined with a brown leather inside in order to keep the wood from scratching up anything on the guitar.
So as of writing this this is where I am at with the project! This is for my girlfriend’s birthday on August 21st and I need to get it done by then. I’m really hoping that she’ll like it! Let me know if you guys have any feedback along the way!
