My first attempt at bent lamination. It was a lot easier than I imagined. Originally, I thought about making this sort-of like a band saw box, but it was too wide and thin. Mainly, I don’t think I could have kept the sides at an equal thickness throughout the entire shape.
So I went with three layers of very thin poplar and bent them around some pegs. The lid is a pressure-fit, nice and snug, using a modified rabbet to hold it in. Video here.
