Re: Mattkab's GV13

Or, if you are a masochist... STEAM BEND! Seriously... steam bending is amazing if you have the patience. Long 4" pvc. Cap ends with clean out fittings. T in middle. Feed steam in at the T. Wood is amazing stuff. Seems like an awful lot of work for just 2 pieces of narrow wood that can be kerfed an...

Re: Mattkab's GV13

That does look good. In hindsight, would it have been quicker to remove it all and start again? In any case, it looks good now!
