Rockler Simplifies Wood Bending Process

Wednesday 5 October 2011

This Steam Bending Kit from Rockler is a unique device that many woodworkers can use with any steam box to give any wood species enough plasticity to bend or curve to their liking. With no moving parts, steam bending makes it very easy to bend wood used in the construction of oval Shaker boxes, instruments, specialised moulding, doors, handrails, and many other applications.

The Steam Bending Kit includes a built-in heating element that heats water and the contents of the steam box to 212° F. The 5.3 quart reservoir provides two hours of steam, but may be refilled to provide continuous steam when necessary on larger projects or when bending thicker, denser wood. Also included is a 10' long steam hose that safely directs steam to the steam box, and a complete hardware kit with assembly plan that provides easy step-by-step instructions on how to build a custom steam box.
