I wondered how I could maintain a degree of progress... My neighbor offered use of his basement where temps stay in the 50's. (My bowed roof/poly shed temps are in the 20's most of these nights.)
Deck and cabin trunk beams beckoned. I had the beam molds (patterns) generated back from the lofting days, so I plowed through the scrap lumber pile for jig material. A couple of 2x10s about 8' long and some scrap 2x answered. I covered the 2x10s with old poly cutoffs, then screwed down blocks along the curve to clamp the lams.
The glue up:
The resultant product. I moved the beams back into the shed for sanding, etc. They came out so darned purty that I hesitate to paint them, which was my original intent.
The overhead will be white, so a contrasting beam color would be nice, and I am wondering if there is a stain or natural finish that will not cause the glue line along the lams to stick out. (I've seen comments here to use Weldwood to avoid this problem, i.e. color line, but as above, I thought I might paint them when I began)....Guess I might try a little stain, etc. on an offcut...
