Bent Plywood For Furniture

June 23, 2019 – June 29, 2019

Tally Locke

In this workshop students discover the fundamentals of bending and laminating their own plywood to create one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. During class you will explore vacuum forming, kerf bending and two-part mold making. Each student will design and construct a side table utilizing bent plywood techniques. Our focus is on the technical challenges of form construction, plywood post-processing and veneering. After leaving this course participants will understand the limits and possibilities of incorporating bent plywood into their furniture-making practice. Basic to intermediate woodworking skills are recommended, but not required.
