    Kerf Spacing Calculator for Bending Wood

    Thanks all. Not sure what this doughnut thing is all about, but I've managed to obtain a few to distribute amongst forum members. Get your doughnuts here But be quick, they may not last long.
  2. I've just added a Kerf Spacing Calculator to blocklayer.com, that some of you may find useful. It works out the geometric spacing of the cuts so when bent, the inside edges of the cuts join to create the curve. The depth of the cuts (and remaining wood thickness for the bend) can't be calculated (that I can work out anyway). That seems to be the art of it. Depends on the wood and the dimensions. Trial and error? But this will produce simple geometric diagrams, so you can see the wood and cuts both straight and bent, and drag sliders to animate angle, radius, cut width etc to see what changes. It also creates a full scale template to mark out the cuts. https://www.blocklayer.com/kerf-spacingeng.aspx It obviously can't be 100% accurate, but should give a pretty close idea of what sort of a bend you'll get for the entered dimensions. If it needs editing, additions, fixing or you have any other ideas for improvements, please let me know.

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
