I cut the wood and run it through the drum sander to get it at thickness. Then I glue two to three pieces together. Here I am applying the glue.
These forms sandwich the wood into the subtle curves that I have been working with recently. This plus the glue setting overnight will force the wood to maintain its shape.
After I remove them from the forms all that remains is to drill the holes for the bolt and to select the pottery that will work best with the wood. Here is a match.
Oh one last step which does involve another overnight... Finish.
More to come soon.
