This is a bent lamination wall shelf made from Ash from a Popular Woodworking magazine article from 2005.
It was pretty easy to build following the directions. I had wanted to build this since I got the magazine way back in 2005 but didnt have all the tools needed. This past year I’ve got a Dewalt 735 planer, Grizzly 0490 8” Jointer, Grizzly G0513X2 Bandsaw and G0548Z 2HP Dust Collector so the build was on!
A few things I would do different;
1. When resawing the 3/16” slats, I would not just randomly slice them from multiple boards at a time and not keep track of the order of the boards so the graind doesnt match. I was trying to be efficient not walking back and forth from the Bandsaw/Jointer.
2. When gluing the boards against the form, I would need more clamps and would use a negative form to apply even pressure along all the slats.
3. When routing the slots, I would put some tearout protection on the front of the boards as some of them did tearout when cutting the slots for the shelves.
This was my first project with all my new equipment so I’ve labeled it the $2000+ shelf!
