I have uploaded a new video to the “Skill Building” page of my website. It is the first of three parts on making bent wood pieces by laminating thin strips together. Free to watch, I hope it is helpful!

Handi, I’ve done some laminating and I have always want to do a twist coming out of a bend. Haven’t figured out how to do it. Have you done anything like that? What would be really awesome is a twist during the bend. I can’t imagine what that jig would look like. Staying simple, I would like to do a bend, twist and then bend back in the same direction you came from. Ideas?

DKV,

I’ve not done that, but you could try it by cutting the form faces at the proper twist. Remember that using a greater number of thinner laminations will form more easily. You may also want to soak the strips overnight to make them more pliable.
