Today in the Shop
The interesting project today is a maple dog pod. I start with thin layers of veneer and plywood . . .
Apply glue to all the layers, and strap it to the form . . .
Load it all into a vacuum bag. . .
And 6-8 hours later I have the basic form. There is a lot that can go wrong, but this one turned out perfectly. While it looks like a pod already, there is still a ton of work to be completed. The legs are a more complicated procedure - one that occurs over several pressings. They should be ready later today.
