Topic tags/keywords: question

I was looking at some of Judson Beaumont’s work and was wondering how he builds these;

Does anyone have any ideas about the construction of these? It looks to me that he may use a bent lamination form for the sides then cuts the front and back using a template including drawer openings on sheet of plywood or mdf. Then attaches them somehow. After that he uses nicer veneer to match it all up and cover the whole thing.

Any ideas??? I’d like to try it and would do it the way I described above. But if there is a “right” way It would make it a lot easier.

Vacuum veneering. You build a form for the panels and laminate
them up. Then you’d put front, back and sides of the cabinet
together and veneer and trim each side one at a time by putting
it back in the bag or using some variant of hammer veneering.

Organize your process about making a veneerable 3-dimensional
substrate in the shape you want first.

bending the sides might be to muck work
for steam and forms

but saw kerfing alternately back and forth
would give you the ply-ability
and fill with epoxy to keep them there on a form
sand and veneer as stated

or some thinner layers ov ply laminated together
over a form
