Thought I would post the project I am currently working on.
They are 4 – 10 ft tall mahogany panels to be installed in a clients living room.
The rails are bent lamentations consisting of 6 – 1/8” resawen and sanded layers glued up with a jig in the vacuum press. The styles were run through a local millwork’s moulder with a 42” concave radius face to match the radius of the rails.
I will continue with pics of some of the moldings I have run for the project so far.

Wow. Those are impressive. I cannot fathom the work involved with a project of this size. I posted a plant stand yesterday which was a bent lamination. I uttered several expletives during the glue up and lamination process but that project is nothing compared to this.

I, personally, would love to see a blog on this process if you have time. Many of us simply have no opportunity for exposure to work of this scale.

I am sure that the finished job is going to be gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing.

Great looking project. The bent lamentations look very impressive.

Those things are fantastic. In case you don’t know yet, I love mahogany.

you’re work is very nice, curved panel must be difficult to match and plumb at the site.

Phenomenal work!
Very unusual, too.

By the way, I see you have a Legacy Mill in your shop. What model is it? I have a 1500EX.
