My wife bought one of those little steam buggies for cleaning. She never used it much so I figured I would use it for filling my steaming box full of steam. Works great. Remember it takes aprox. 1 hour of steaming for every 1 inch thickness of wood. 1/4 inch material=15 mins of steaming. A lot of the exotic woods will not react to steaming at all except to bleach out some of the color. Walnut cherry ash and maple (normal hardwoods react very well to steaming) When pulling the steamed wood from the box have your bending jig and clamps ready to go because your only have a few seconds to react before the wood starts to set.
Bend all strips to be laminated first, then after they have set, glue and laminate bent strips together.

speaking of being full of air, did you ever tell anyone the story about how you wanted to grow taller so you tried blowing yourself up with an air compressor?

And I won't tell them what body opening you stuck it in boxing.gif

Sometimes while sleeping I set the hooks so hard I wake myself up! It's really going to get ugly if I ever get one on!

New to this site and fairly new at Rodbuilding...but have made a few nets....

Ash bends really well and is IMO the best wood to use...especially for a beginner.

Always cut and steam/soak xtra strips in case you break one...if you bend enough wood you will eventually break a pc

Quick steam rig...cheap kettle on floor with a pvc tube over the spout put a couple screws thru the bottom of the pvc criss crossing for ur strips to rest on ..load in your strips put a cap on top...plug in kettle...don't run out of water.

You can also soak strips in really hot water in the bath tub...make sure once placed in bending for you leave them dry a couple days if you do this.
