The Laboratory

Here’s a handful of weeks of mad scientist style exploration of the steam bending process. Lots of trial and error. To say it simply,  I steam the wood for a couple hours and then use around three minutes of workable time to insert the wood into a strap, fix it on the form, bend it with long pipes as levers and then fix it to the formwork with clamps. Videos to come. Enjoy!
