Another small project of mine
« on: January 23, 2018, 01:31 PM »
I like to use tools as they not suppose to.. So here I'd like to share with you some shelf I made for my friends shop.
Only 3 tools was used: Track saw, mitter (is that English at all?)saw and domino 500
What you see are visible dominos and 20mm birch playwood. 
Looks little bit 60's..?

As a carpenter (not cabinet maker), builder I used what i know works. SikaFlex :) It comes in different colours, and i found one that looks like birch. I filled voids up and then bend and strap. The glue (filler) that comes out best not to do anything with untill it's dry. Then it's easily removed. If you calculate the number of cuts you need, to achieve desired angle and radius, then the gaps are really tight, and after sanding you dont see any cracks at all, only from the side. But I have no problem with anybody see how it's made ..

Thanks.
Sure there are voids, from the side. But whole project was an exercise to see if i can calculate number of cuts, distance between them and achieve 90 degree angle.
But yes, that ply is really pleasure to work with. Thanks for our Baltic friends, which soon will not have any forest left...

Great work, I love the design - it's different than what is normally posted. Very creative.

Thank you!
It's what you'd call in conceptual phase.  Unfortunately none of my projects ever move from there, cause I need only one of things :)

Really nice work...

So you determine the number of cuts to get you to a 90 degree angle, fill with the adhesive filler and bend and clamp? 

I looked at the Sika website.  What was the product that you used?  I see several adhesives and fillers listed. 

https://usa.sika.com/en/solutions_products/Construction-Products-Services/construction-sealing-bonding.html

Which did you use?  It looks like they remain flexible.  Wondering if this causes any problem with the shelves.

Thanks for sharing- cool project!

I used something like that. May be sikaflex pro, I don'n remember exactly. We have wide range of colours, I picked birch.  I have not seen any problems yet.
I prefer flexible glue. Wood is always alive, so is the glue too. You have each cut that is approx 19mm deep and 2,8 mm wide. the flexing in the glue is marginal. But still, please keep in mine that I'm a lumberjack compare to the high-end products people share here... :) May be what is good enough for me is unacceptable to others...

Could you share a little more on how you do the calculations to know how many kerfs to cut to achieve the minimum, or is it just by using trial pieces first?

Beautiful design and definitely has the Scandinavian taste of its own. How is A-HA doing in these days? are they still around?
Thanks for sharing.
