I've glued two pieces of veneer together, sanded them and drilled them. I need to put a slight bend in the wood so that they can sit nice on a hat.

Please advise.
>>
Typically bends are added via steaming or soaking the wood and letting it dry in a jig. Since you've already glued, I'm not sure anon.

There's a new yankee workshop about this.

Why does every anon on hear suggest steam bending.

Just build layers up over a form.

Shoulda' bent it BEFORE you glued it. I assume it's an asshat that you're making.

Steam bending is for solid pieces of wood. I regularly bend 2x2" pieces of solid oak with steam.

For veneer, you soak in water and bend and glue. The water in this case is just to keep the thin veneer from cracking.

>build up layers

i dont think anon wants lbs of wood on his hat
>>
>>932909
... the layers are like 1/32". so you end up with a 1/4" rigidly bent piece of wood out of 4 pieces. which will be like 2 ounces of wood.
>>
Why are you making a hat out of wood?
>>
we're making tags for clothing. If the wood gets wet it goes flexible. when it dries will it go brittle? is there a way of waterproofing the wood after its in shape? We've never worked with such thin wood.
>>
>>934637
You could do some sort of resin impregnation.

OR

Consider just making them thicker and rigid.

I laser cut out a bunch of wood tags in 1/8" Walnut for a local artist.
>>
>>934641
How much do you charge for that? It could be a solution. and I need somebody who is able to laser wood for a small business i run.
