I am hoping the pictures tell most of the story. This was laminated with a slight deflex-reflex. For this form i got a piece of 2″x2″ steel. No worries about anything sticking to it. The reflex, deflex is made by blocking up the middle and tips similar to this one.

I started with 5/4″ white oak 2″ wide. I used titebond 3.
