After watching my Facebook friend Woodworking or mere mortals make a jig for bending thin strips of wood, I had to try and make one.
The thickness of my plywood made cutting curves in it nearly impossible. I used 4 ply’s and I don’t think my BS can take much more of this.
I’m going to make another out of a second sheet of plywood, maybe two different curves, or just a jig to make certain angles.
The options are to cut the strips to be bent very thin, then you can either soak them, or glue them up and bend 4 or 5 at the same time.
I have some small strips from a 2×4 in there now drying, they should retain the curve when I take them out.
