Bending wood

(back to the encyclopaedia index)

I've read about steam bending, and it sounds like it would be easier to build a steam box than build and learn to use any kind of bender. Can I steam bend the sides?

Steam bending works on thick pieces of wood because a thick piece of wood holds the heat for long enough to get it clamped into shape. Thin wood like guitar sides won't hold the heat long enough, and will cool before you finish getting it clamped into your mold. Side benders work well because they supply constant heat during the bending process. We promise that with bending the sides over or in a bender really isn't that hard with a bit of practice. Really!
