Details, Details, Details: Photos of the Shop and Details of the Bending Form
I've had some requests to post photographs of the shop. It needs a lot of attention, as you can see, but I have it up and running. It needs a new roof and floor, but I'm proud of it, and I feel comfortable in there. The shop feels like how Charlie Patton sounds to me.
Here are more detailed photographs of the bending forms. Notice that the form is notched to accept the wood and strap. This keeps the wood anchored so that it can be bent.
Here is a side view of the form. Notice that there is a piece of wood attached to the bottom of the form so the whole thing can be attached to a workbench.
