I had the Walnut Wood Strips 1.5 x 3mm soaking in Water + Glycerin for almost 24 hours. I had no problem bending it.
These DeWalt Clamps only go so deep. The Wale will be down below the Sapelle Wood.
I used Contact Cement and in some spots SuperGlue.
Yeah… I put another coat of Black paint on it…
I always feel like an Able Bodies Seaman sitting in a Bosun’s Chair while painting over the dings in the Wale up some river in England… 🙄🤔
