    Bending Laminate

    OK I get it I was wrong. It's not the look I'm going for anyway. If I want to do origami I'll use paper.

    Bending Laminate

    Thanks for the replies keep them coming. Where's the stuff about being radius down three sides coming from,, I don't think I've ever said that. I did say that I would radius the two long edges. Anyhow just wanted to clear up at I'm not crazy I know I can't radius all 4 edges or even three of them if I use the laminate and want to Waterfall them. That would only be possible with a wood Edge or the solid surface option. Thanks for the heads up on the post forming/ VT laminate.

    Bending Laminate

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll have to ponder this some more. Have to admit I'm tempted to try at least one long edge myself. If I can get one edge rounded I'm good with the others being square, so a trip to the local restore seems like it is in order. A quick inquiry (only called one place) got a ballpark number of $330 for a counter top shop to make it up, they would radius the 2 long sides and leave the short ones square. The wood edge had already come to mind, so I haven't ruled that out. I'll keep ya posted. TxMoose

    Bending Laminate

    I forgot to say that when I rehab the top the whole thing would be replaced. I would make a new substrate the laminate to. TxMoose

    Bending Laminate

    So I picked up a vintage Mayline Futur-Matic-Drafting-Table. This table is electrically adjustable from about 30" to 48" above the floor, and works great. My goal is to rehab it into a standing desk. This means addressing the top. I would like to make a new top with a laminate top (formica, wilsonart etc.). It will see use 7-8hrs a day. This top will be 3'x6' I would really like to have a waterfall/rounded profile on the long edges. This brings up the question of is this something I can successfully do myself with say a heat gun and patience? Or should it be left up to the pros? What radius do you think would be a safe bend? Suggestions or Ideas? Thanks, TxMoose MAYLINE 1.pdf MAYLINE 2.pdf

    Had to chuckle to myself last night. Was watching a episode of Tree House Masters with the kids and they were using Car Decking, 1 1/2" thick tongue and groove SPF.

    Trusting your clamps

    I guess this is what you do if you: 1. Don't own a saw of any other kind powered or hand. 2. Enjoy bodily pain. 3. Like demonstrating how to not do things.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
