How To Build A Bench With Steam Curved Wood

Here at Old News Club, we are huge fans of all kinds of craftsmanship! We are also particularly fond of woodworking and love to see how the natural material can be turned into anything from the Death Star to a dugout canoe. This time, we are diving into the discipline of wood bending where steam is used for creating curved pieces of wood. The steam bending technique has been used for many years, especially for boat building, musical instruments and fine furniture. The YouTube channel “create” shows just how flexible wood can become after being exposed to heat and moisture, but it requires skills to know exactly when the wood fibers are soft enough and how much you can bend it. Check out the amazing skills (and patience!) that goes into creating this beautiful steam curved wood bench.
