One of the key processes to making my furniture is bending wood. There are multiple ways to do this; I choose to use the vaccuum bag method. It begins by making a template in the desired shpe, and then using that as a guide to route all the other pieces with which to build a bending jig. After composing the jig, I cut the layers of wood veneer to approximate length and width, and use a two part urea-formaldahyde resin to glue the layers together. Then these are placed over the jig in the vacuum bag, which is sealed afterwards. Turn on the vacuum press to suck all air from the bag, pulling the wood layers tight over the mold. After 12 hours, the bag can be opened and the wood bend is now solid and can be picked up off the mold.
