The first version of this bent wood stand that was posted a while back (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/80155) was cut from a single piece of wood. Aside from wasting a lot of wood, the grain pattern at the bend makes that a very weak area. The cross bars were also built flat. This version is of laminated cherry and should be considerably stronger. The cross bars also have a slight curve from side to side and a bit of a flare from top to bottom.
I’m still trying to get better project photos. These were saved as gif files supposedly for internet use but these pictures somehow came out muddy looking on my computer – like too much data was lost. The color is also off. Any suggestions for better pictures would be appreciated.
