Such beautiful, crazy twists and curves on this wooden bench. Maker André Göbel achieved this amazing look by steam-bending the wood and holding it all together using dimensionally stable epoxy resin adhesive. Imagine the recoil forces this thing is under.
As with other videos on André’s channel, there are a ton of great tips shown during the build. It even features the workpiece-transport clamp he built out of a skate wheel and an F-clamp. I featured this awesome little DIY shop tool in my latest tips book.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
