Thanks Harry.That's a very nice looking wood grain, will look even better when finished. Great work Tony.
If I had that capability. I think the next batch I'm going to soak for about 30 minutes before I attempt the bending, and use a much hotter homemade bending pipe I used to use before I got the commercial one. Other woods like Walnut and Indian Rosewood bend with ease. Some woods are just not as friendly when bending.Wonder if you can steam them first?
