1/2 round Cherry side table

Thanks J-W-P.

I bridged the form from the table saw to the work bench. I laid an old flannel bed sheet over it hanging over the edges & covered it with worn out jeans & sweatshirts. I had an oil filled radiator style heater under it set on 74*. Left it like this for 24hrs. It had to be nearly 80* under all that the next evening. It's now unclamped with a spacer across the back opening & a band clamp around it because I didn't have time to do anything else with it yesterday evening. Hope to get back to it this afternoon. Springback at that point was 1/4" to the original 24" I was looking for. It's been in a small heated room since coming out of the form.




This afternoon might be good. Calling for rain most of it. More to come!!

I finally got back to it yesterday. After allowing the piece to set with the clamp on it to ensure it's shape I finally unclamped it yesterday again. I also trimmed the ends to square & got the center leg cut & attached. 2 legs to go. Once I'm happy with the base I will mill the boards for the top & do a glue up for that.

OK. I have the base all glued up. The top needs some edge jointing & it's ready to glue up.

Once the glue was cleaned up & the edges were milled smooth on the apron I found a couple voids that were on the bottom. Nothing serious maybe? As usual,, all thoughts & opinions are Welcome!!



Longest & 1/32" gap.



Most disturbing since it's on the face veneer.



All but 3 spots look like this.



A bunch of sanding. LOL



BTW-- I do have a theory on springback if anybody is interested.

Lookin good. I've had worse, when the glue was setting too fast and not enough hands or enough clamps in the right/wrong places.

I normally blow the dust out of those holes, and fill with your same glue.


9-11 a terrible day

Redman-- im sure it does. This is my 1st bent glueup and altho i reported 1/4" springback i quickly realized i wouldnt get back to this project for a day. Turns out it was a couple days. In realizing this i cut a board to the length across the back of the form with 4° angles to fit the curve. I wrapped a band clamp around it & put a bar clamp on. Then let it set til i got back to it. No springback when i removed the clamps this time. I wonder if glued bent lams need more like 72hrs on the form. I used just under 1/2 bottle of TB Ext glue on this thing. To me thats a LOT of glue.

Any thoughts ideas or speculations?
