Building a bending jig

Build a bending jig like the one shown at left to bend the bow and arm of a sackback Windsor chair. Cut two pieces of %-inch plywood to the desired curve of the bow and arm, then screw them together to make the form. Mount the form on a %-inch plywood base and mark the center of the form near its top edge. Then cut the stop block from hardwood and screw it to the base, and bore the two ^-inch-diameter dowel holes into the base. The space between the block and dowels and the form should equal the thickness of the workpiece plus the wedges used to secure it in place. Finally, prepare the dowels and wedges, then clamp the base to a work surface.
