A Call Two Arms
After letting the second runner dry for about 24 hours, I removed it from the clamping form and discovered that it turned out even better than the first runner! Since this project has been my first attempt at making bent laminations, I've definitely picked up some techniques and tricks that make the process much smoother. I think if I had to make a couple more runners, I'd be a pro! Too bad I only need the two for this project.
Here's a video of me flattening one edge of one of the runners on the jointer. Have I mentioned lately that I love this machine???
And here's a clip of me flattening one edge of one of the splats.
Then a few quick passes through the planer to clean up the opposite edges of the runners and splats.
All in all, I'm super happy with my progress so far. From here, it's just a matter of refining each individual part and then fitting them together into a usable piece of furniture. So really, this thing is practically done already... ha ha!
