CURRENT PROJECT IS A SHIPS WHEEL, 36" DIA, 6 SPOKE.
AM GOING TO BEND 5/8" X 1 1/4 " X 22 " RED OAK TO FORM 36" AND 34" DIA SECTIONS
THESE WILL BE GLUED BETWEEN THE FACE AND BACK WHICH ARE 3/4" RED OAK
HAVE "NOTCHED/RELIEVED" THESE 22" STRIPS 5/16" DEEP AND 5/8" APART
HOW MUCH "SPRING BACK" SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER CURING.....
I HAVE MANY YEARS OF WOOD WORKING EXPERIENCE AND THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN FULL OF NEW WRINKLES. HOPE I LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO FINISH.
SUBJECT : STEAM
Do you plan on steam bending or just forming them around a jig. If you are steaming I can tell you a easy way to do this and you would not have to make any releaf cuts in your wood.
THANKS FOR THE REPLY. PROJECT IS FINISHED.
TOOK A GUESS AT 5/8" OVERBEND. THIS WORKED, REAL GOOD
KAINTUCKY WINDAGE WAS 2X THE THICKNESS OF BENDING MATL.
ANY EDJAMAKATION IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED
AGAIN THANK YOU
