Bentwood Coffee Table

So, here is a coffee table I made for a class last semester. I made it out of maple… with a 1/2 in. thick glass top. It was made through a bent lamination technique. It looks good, I think… well, I’m proud of it. It was a finalist in the IWF Atlanta show this year.

The hardest part was making the mold for bending. If anyone is interested in seeing the molds, let me know.

Very nice bent lamination. It is difficult to do nice work with light woods. They show every flaw.

Well Done!!!!!!

Also, I would be interested in seeing some of the molds. I do bent laminations once in a while and would like to see your technique. You can send me an email if you like.

Thanks, John

Justin, welcome to LJ. This table is fabulous. I second Carl’s request. I’d love to see the molds used to do this.

Thanks for posting it.

That is absolutely awesome. My hat is off to you Justin. Sometimes I wish my semester projects had been with wood instead of electrons. I just had not gotten bitten by the bug at that time.

Keep up the great work. With talent like that, you will be going places.

Great job. I like the way the design looks different from the top or from the side.
