LAMINATING with DAVID UPFILL–BROWN

Master Class

This one-week class is for woodworkers, furniture makers and artists who wish to learn something about laminating wood into arcs and curves, or serpentine combinations of these using long, thin, flexible bands of wood and pressing them together with glue in a mould to lock them into a desired shape.

For beginners we will laminate a simple bend from which to make a walking stick. For students who have a project in hand we will take this piece meal and this can be discussed prior to class.

Topics covered will be:

  • Selecting suitable material for lamination – bendability, glue suitability, volume (tolerances), grain, etc.
  • Drawing arcs and curves
  • Achieving tighter bends – steam and hot pipe bending
  • Making patterns
  • Formers (moulds)
  • Making formers (moulds) from patterns
  • Clamping strategies and techniques
  • Making laminates – tuning machines and methods thereon
  • Tapered laminations
  • Adhesives – suitability, working and setting times etc.
  • Dimensioning laminations
  • Shaping after lamination
  • Joinery on curved components

Most of the above will be taught by practical exercise and projects at the bench.
