I have a couple of ideas for new projects and one of them involves 1” thick maple slats that are held together using steel cables…with gaps to show the empty space….my question is how to get the cable tight enough so there is no slack, and an even tension across each of the approx 4-5 cables…
I’ve never tried it, so I don’t know the techniques or ‘Gotchas’ involved in working with cables.
any info, or links or opinions would be fantastic.
