Details about Steam Bending:  Your woodworking will take on a new dimension once you can master curved shapes. But, when you want to curve a piece of wood, do you saw it, laminate it or steam-bend? Steam bending is the way to go when you need to preserve the wood's full strength and its natural appearance (sawing curves weakens wood by shortening the grain, and lamination produces visible glue lines).In this video Lon Schleining, using household appliances and common woodshop tools, takes you through each step in the process of steam-bending brackets and crest rails for chairs.You'll learn how to select woods for bending, how to plan and build bending forms, how to make a steam box, and how to prevent compression and tension failures as you bend sticks as much as 90 degrees. You will find out how to select the parts of your project from raw sticks and how to steam-bend posts when necessary. The video also covers making the joints, finishing and weaving.
