Glulam

First Glulam

 

This is the first glulam (glued laminate). A 1m radius arc, made from 5mm thick strips of redwood pine, held together with PVA glue. The f-clamps are the cheapest available from ebay, they barely have enough pressure to compress the layers effectively. I’ve bought some more g-clamps to really squeeze the last 20cm as there was some de-lamination on one end of this piece.
