Bent Wood Table // Bent Lamination // How to Bend Wood

Bent Wood Table // Bent Lamination // Dining Table… In this video, I decide to bend some wood. There are various ways to accomplish bent lamination, such as steam bending, kerf cutting or the method I used which is to cut a series of thin wood laminations to bend around a form and glue them all together. It’s a time consuming task, but well worth the effort. A bent lamination detail adds nice visual interest and can really enhance the appeal and value of a piece of furniture. It opens up a whole new design aesthetic to incorporate into your furniture designs. I’m certainly NOT an expert, but I think I learned quite a bit on this project to help me on any future projects that will require bending lamination to give a bent wood look. Well, I probably learned even more because I had to build it TWICE!! Stay tuned to the end of the video to find out why I had to build two tables. #bentwoodtable #bentlamination #kjsawdust #bendingwood
