Learn Basic Wood-Bending Methods

Wood is usually considered a stiff, unyielding material, but over the centuries, woodworkers have found some ingenious ways to bend wood to make what they wanted -- items as diverse as a delicate violin, a flexible pair of skis, and a graceful, comfortable chair.

In this collection of 35 articles from Fine Woodworking magazine's classic black-and-white era, craftsmen explain basic wood-bending methods and how they've put them to use in their shops. You'll also learn how you can make the tools and acquire the skills you need for successful bending in your own projects.

  Cigar Box Guitars

Cigar box guitars have never been more popular and now you can learn to make your own.

Cigar box guitars have never been more popular and now you can learn to make your own. You don't need to spend a lot of money and you don't need to have a shop full of tools. All you need to do is follow the author's step-by-step instructions for making three different styles of guitar. They're fun (some would say addictive) to build and even more fun to play!

The guitars that can be made with this book:

• Basic CBG: A simple build with the minimum number of components. It's a three string acoustic instrument built from a paper covered box and played with a slide and has burned-in fret lines, but no real frets.

• Slightly Nicer CBG. Uses a nicer cigar box, has a more decorative, built-up headstock. Also has burned in fret-lines and three strings. In addition, this one incorporates a very simple piezo pickup so it can be played through an amplifier. Slightly more complex in woodworking terms and involves a bit of wiring and soldering.

• Cigar Box Telecaster. This one would be built from a cigar box and a pre-fabbed six-string guitar neck. It would use commercial pickups and volume/tone controls. I'm picturing it as a tribute to the Fender Telecaster. It involves more complicated woodworking and much more wiring/soldering, as well as filling much of the box with wood to support the tension of six steel strings.

Wood Bending Made Simple with DVD

Wood Bending Made Simple

Wood bending is intriguing to the vast majority of woodworkers, but until now most have not had access to the information they need to add it to their repertoire. This highly visual book and DVD changes that. It features step-by-step instruction on some of the most common techniques. Expert Lon Schleining explains and demonstrates both steam bending (where steam relaxes wood fibers so they can be shaped when clamped to a bending form) and bent lamination (where thin strips of wood are glued together, then clamped to a bending form). Schleining shows just how easy it can be to master these techniques, even using relatively low-tech equipment.
