Hello lumberjocks… ...throwing one of my first bending projects out there for comment. If this were talk radio, I guess I would be starting off with the statement long-time listener, first time caller.
I have been checking this site frequently over the past year or so and have enjoyed the comments and camaraderie of the members. Finally found the courage to put some of my work up here and jump in.
This particular project was a small bent lamination project I did for a class that I was taking. We were required to present one large bending and one small bending project. I had built a bending form for a curved front table that I was working on and decided to use the same form to create a small decorative piece. This simple form is 1/8” laminations of bubinga and white oak. I used a forstner bit to drill the holes and built a curved plywood support to prevent the bottom side from blowing out when the forstner bit penetrated the bottom side. The bud vases were picked up at a local craft store and my wife pulled the fake orchids from another arrangement we had in the house. It was a fairly easy project to complete – and I am pleased with the simplicity of the form. I welcome your comments and look forward to chatting/commenting on some of the great work that is posted here.
