Jerry, I was under the impression that
forms were permanent fixtures (like jigs)...
once you made them, you had them!
You said you dismantled the clamping form...
Do you have a clamping form system whereby you can prepare a
'form' easily, use it, dismantle, and reassemble to use it again
when you want to make another one?
Can you tell us where you buy this "bending poplar" or "bending
plywood" that is 1/8" thick?
Also, would it be OK with you if I extracted your pictures, your &
other posts to add to my collection on
my web page?
This is truly a very unusual project that I'd like to save.
Thank you very much,
About the clamping forms - The one I used for the pressing the doors
is a permanent one - now relegated to a corner of the shop.
But the ones I used for the rails and drawer fronts (which were
pulled together by clamps) were mostly 3/4" MDF stacked and screwed
together - Then trued with a patterning router bit - So they came
apart easily and can be recycled.
The bending plywood I got at a lumber yard that primarily handles
a good selection of foreign woods. Would try a Google
search for a supplier near you.
I am pleased that you would like to include my work on your site -
Thank you very much.
