Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Adirondack Chair #10: Bending the Arms

01-21-2014 07:49 PM by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

Redryder asked about the steam-bending process. I’ve covered that a little bit earlier in the series, but I bent the arms (well, one so far) today, so I took some photos along the way. Here’s the basic set-up. The box is made out of plywood, dado-ed, glued together and caulked on the seams. It has held up fairly well but is starting to come apart in some places and I’ve had to reinforce it. The steamer is the standard Rockler kit. The kit comes with the brass fit...

Adirondack Chair #4: Progress; Compass Rose Started

12-09-2013 02:38 AM by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

I got less time in the workshop than I would have liked today—trivial life things like putting up the Christmas tree and watching Kansas City annihilate the Redskins (sob!) kept interfering. Still I got time in to work on a few things. I got the second set of slats steamed and bent. The first set came out of the steamer with some mysterious stains. I’m not sure why, but I read somewhere on the Internets that the minerals in tap water can sometimes stain. So for this set I use...

Archtop 2012 #2: Sides

03-17-2012 06:01 PM by Josh Sollows | 0 comments »

Hey LJ, sorry for the delay between entries. I’ve been fairly pr-occupied recently but have taken lots of picture of the guitar! Well, steam bending the sides of the guitar was a fairly difficult step in the process. I didn’t use the typical steaming method, but rather, I soaked the pieces under hot water for several minutes. The sides are made of 3/32” thick Walnut. I bended the sides using a form made of laminated ply, in the shape of the sides. The heat was appl...
