My next project is a tapered bent lamination bookshelf, I first heard of and became interested in trying the process from reading Tage Frid’s woodworking book series. though he only discusses the concept of tapering outwardly as opposed to inwardly which is the direction I’m going in.
Has anyone here been through this process and/or have worked with wider pieces 6”-10” stock.
I’ve used a planer sled that I made and gotten decent results though my stock was thinner than I had allotted for and this caused me to fair the transition where I couldn’t plane the entire piece, with a hand plane to get a smooth glue joint. the glue will be with cauls and clamps instead of a vacuum bag because I lack the equipment.
If anyone could share some insight into what I’m getting into it would help to greatly tighten the learning curve and also help avoid any mistakes I’m not prepared for.
