This is quite an accurate method of shaping wood. It involves building up a curvedform with layers (‘lamina‛). The layers may be thin veneers, thicker constructionalveneers or saw-cut strips. They are assembled so that the grain of each layer isrunning in the same direction, following the curve (unlike plywood which hasinterlocking grain).The layers are gluedtogether with a strongadhesive and aresandwiched between thewaxed faces of a formeror a jig using cramppressure. The layers bendto the shape of the jig and‘set‛ together.

Another way of producing curved laminates is to use a ‘bagpress‛. Theprocess is similar to the one outlined above except that only one halfof the mould is required. The thin layers are glued together andplaced over the mould inside a bag from which all of the air isremoved, causing the material to be pulled around the mould.

Routing is a very versatile process. It can be used to cut joints,produce a decorative edge on a piece of work (i.e. a table top orcupboard door) and even to produce turned products using a latheattachment. Shown below is a hand-held power router. Routers arealso available attached to a router table over which pieces of work canbe run. Many different types of router ‘bit‛ are available depending onthe job to be done.A hand-heldpower router

The wood lathe can be used for turning in 2 ways – on the headstock orbetween centres. Either side of the headstock is suitable for turning, usinga flat plate to produce such ‘flat‛ products as bowls, dishes, formers andbases. To handle longer pieces of work, such as legs and spindles, you needto turn between centres. To do this, a drive centre is pushed into thespindle to turn the work which is supported at the other end by a ‘deadcentre‛ located in the tailstock.
