My bending and veneering project from school. Steam bent Ash around a circular form, jointed and planed, then shaped for the internal and external radius. Individually mitred to build the wall. Each piece is screwed in two places and glued to the piece below it. Seriously, this thin is rigid has heck!
I finished it in Osmo, rub on wipe off with white tint in it. This table is the PERFECT piece for the discussion of finish first, or finish when it’s all together. My plan was originally to spray it with conversion varnish or pre cat lacquer… But the internal lever supports and spaces in between the bricks made and overspray issue a huge concern. Thinking back I would have taped off each brink in the glue area, and finished them individually and been extra carful during assembly. This was also a lesson in block planing and carefully sanding end grain… Most of the end grain turned out perfect, but I did have some glue residue in places when I did some wiping of the glue- once that glue is in end gran, forget it, it’s there to stay in this piece.
I hope you enjoy seeing it, it was fun to build and turned out nicely.
