Get bent!

Brian Reid bends it like Beckham using a hot pipe technique

Last week was awash with fascinating demos on bending and laminating wood. Our third and final project calls for curves — students are encouraged to build a demi-lune table for the well-rounded range of techniques it demands. Instead, I’ll spend these final weeks crafting a bent and laminated hat rack and turned legs for my entry table. Way cooler than a Demi Moore table or whatever you call it.

Expect more pictures of steam-bending and laminating next week when I build my hat rack…
