Dining Room Table Part 2

In this video I build the arched rails that join the lower section of the leg assembly for my dining table. I use a technique called bent form lamination to make the curved pieces. This is done my gluing thin strips of wood together and then pressing them over a form as the glue cures. I build a mold out of MDF using a master template. I place the mold and lamination strips in a vacuum bag to create even constant pressure over the form. Lastly, I square the arched rails, cross-cut them to arc length, rip them on the table saw, and use the Festool Domino to join the arched rails to the legs.

I felt completely comfortable and safe ripping the arched rails to width using the table saw. I rehearsed the cut multiple time prior to even raising the blade for the cut. I also made sure I had the proper guide and feed mechanisms to maintain pressure against the rip fence and table saw top. If you ever feel unsafe about tool operation you should listen to your intuition and not proceed until the appropriate safety measures are taken.
