This was my first attempt at bent lamination and this looked like a harmless project to start with. I used some fairly straight grained pine I had on hand for the handle and cut them to 1/16”. I had to experiment a bit as the first piece was a fat 16th and wanted to split so I took it down a bit and found the sweet spot. The bending form took some time to layout and drill but worked well. The case was pretty straight forward, the slight angles on the ends give the piece a nice look. I rubbed on 3 coats of tried and true and may tweak the look a bit more to “honey” it up. My wife will get plenty of use using this as a decoration throughout the year….a fun project to play around with for sure.
