Steam Bending QSWO
i have to bend some qswo to create some pieces 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 with a 9 1/2 inch radius. My stock is dressed to 3/4 by 1 1/2 and a little over 4 feet long. The bent pieces will be laminated to create the 1 1/2 material
I will be bending the first piece around a form followed by the second piece wrapped over the first and glueing them together at some point.
I assume that hot wet wood will not glue properly, am i correct? and if so when should they be glued up?
I have the Lee Valley bending setup and a heavy duty form and drying rack as per their instruction manual plus a kettle, hotplate and steam chamber of abs pipe.
Any hints, suggestions?
