I want to make a wooden packframe for a backpack. It will be a full size
backpack (3/4 lenght on frame, 55 L/3300 cu in volume), so the frame
will have to be able be fairly sturdy. At the same time I can't make it
too heavy. About 20 years ago I say a set of instructions for what I
want to make, and they used glued up laminate, glued in shape, and I was
thinking of doing the same.
Some flex is good, but wobbly obviously isn't. I was thinking about ash
and/or birch as the material (local availability is poor, but I have a
piece of straight ash, and birch I can get).
Is my choice of wook sane, and what dimentions, layering, etc would you
