    Howdy,
    Does anyone have some easy to follow plans for bamboo planing (and other necessary) forms, or any pre-made forms they would be willing to sell? I need planing forms as well as the other forms needed to build bamboo blanks. Thanks,
    Cowboy

    Here are some if you want to make some maple forms,

    Thomas Penrose has another set of instructions for making metal forms also.

    If you have a set of planing forms you really don't need roughing forms. You can just open up the forms a bit and start to bring in the angles then reset your forms to your desired taper. I have a friend who has some half done forms he picked up he may be willing to sell, pm me if you think this might work.
