I enjoyed a couple extra days off earlier this week and was able to get some time out in the shop to experiment with some bent lamination…see all the gory details here…
I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now, and it was pretty fun. I’ll be doing more of this on a larger scale for sure!
This bend is made of alternating strips of Wenge and Padauk, and will become the handle for a box lid.
Thanks for looking, and any tips would be greatly appreciated. This first bend had quite a bit of sqeeze-out, so that means quite a bit of sanding to clean it up! I’ll have to be a little less generous on the next one.
