Ying Yang mirror with cold bend wood *PIC*

john lucas
This was another project started this week. As the Zebra wood was drying I would make a cut or two on this project. I was using some dry cold bend wood. It needs to be wet to bend and I wasn't sure how re wetting this wood that has dried would work. turns out it works perfectly. I wet the ash and let it sit overnight. Then I clamped it in the precut mirror pieces. I let that sit for 2 days. Then I glued them together using epoxy. then turned and carved it. The handle was easier because the bend wasn't so severe so I took one of the pieces that was almost dry and glued it together with yellow glue.
