Looking for some insight / thoughts
I am looking to make some stools for a new kitchen. The design I am
shooting for uses stretchers that are curved in the chape of a horse shoe.
The front of the stool has a straight stretcher. The sides and back from
the horse shoe
I am interested in making the horsehsoe stretcher out of laminated strips of
maple. I figure a form made of MDF, glue and clamps should do the trick.
Once I have the curved sections glued up I will need to clean the top and
bottom of the curved section -- glue squeeze out. I am considering
running them through the planer but not sure how this will work -- being
that they are curved and I am not sure they will ride through perpendicular.
I also have a drum sander.
Anybody got a good way to do this ?
