Good for you Andy - it looks to be a very ambitious project. I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

I too have used a lot of clamps for laminating but I always wonder how I might have got on with Tage Frid's method of using strips of inner tube wound round the plies and the former - a lot cheaper!

Cheers, Alf

Nice one Andy,

I think you can always prove this old adage when you're finished clamping and realise you've used about half a dozen different types of clamps.

I once had a project where I'd used all my G and F clamps so ended up throwing in a couple of sash clamps to finish off, looked like a right bodge 'til I removed the clamps. :?

cheers
Mitch

The joints on this project are already making me sleep less at night.

Mind you Alf it all started with what can I do with my new spokeshave? So watch out!
I have a copy though of the 4/5 write ups David did in GoodWoodworking on these chairs, with loads of project in progress photos - so we are all pouring over them to spot how they did it and guess at dimesions and angles.

I regularly post the pictures (every week to my photo album) and no doubt if I get stuck I'll post to the learned company of UK Workshop!

Keep you all posted
