This was a fun project!
One I havent seen done really..
I’ve been experimenting with steam bending wood.. so with this, I just steam bent a small strip of walnut,
And drilled a small hole into a lathed handle, and glue!
So, the one worry I have is the strength of the bent part.
Perhaps another wood would be a better choice. When I’ve dealt with small strips of walnut, they seem to just break with no warning if the grain is not right.
What wood might you choose for this project?
Feel free to check out a bunch of my other stuff here!
