A bunch of questions
I'm working on a bow-arm morris chair and I'm debating on how to best
bend the arms.
Dimensions are roughly 1-1/8 x 5 x 36" with about 3" of bend on maybe a
60"radius. Quarter sawn wht oak.
I've done some steam bending, but have been unable to locate air dried
stock for this project. Previous attempts to steam bend kiln dried
stock have been inconsistant at best.
I'm considering glue-lam and vac bagging.
Are the ~$300 1 cfm vac bag systems capable of clamping up 9 layers of
1/8" wht oak for this sort of form?
Or do I need to spend a bundle for a 3+ cfm system or look into making
Thanks in advance for any advice. I apologize if this has been asked
before, I found a few things but nothing specifically about the
capability of the ~ 1cfm ~$300 systems.
