this would be more likely to work if you use thinner material, so less of a gap created by pulling the two ends apart.
Yeah actually you could do this pretty easily with a ton of veneer layers. Not it! That’s way too much glue up.
Hahaha I was wondering about that too
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.
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.
Sooooooo beautiful! We are all in love with Chronos!
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”.
These are the solutions that change the world
I always love the contrasting pop that you get when you combine Purpleheart and Yellowheart!!
Even more impressive in uv light!
