Yeah actually you could do this pretty easily with a ton of veneer layers. Not it! That’s way too much glue up.

If you had the wood soaking in alcohol it would bend and then hold the shape after drying. A lot easier with Basswood than Wenge but everything else would be between those two.

I was thinking for a second veneer with 3M adhesive, but that would leave no room for error.

Yeah I prefer wood glue, open time is key.

Beautiful! And a similar solution to one I’ve used to some success for the ah, Three Body Problem if you will.

Must take a lot of work to get it so perfectly round! Do you do all the sanding by hand?

Go back to the main post, there’s a link to edge nerdery at the end that you click on for more info. I detailed it for you. :slight_smile:

DERP. Totally missed that.

Wow, I’m impressed you get it so even all by hand. Well done!

It’s really not hard when you build the shape into the design like that. You just grind the edges away, no problem.

I know it wouldn’t be an easy technique for your design but the project reminded me of my solution to “I want to make a handle but I don’t have a lathe (but I do have a drill press and laser) problem”.
