Steam Bending the Carlins

Last week was an experiment. It worked. Today we steam bent two pieces for the carlins and clamped them in place. Things worked better today than last week.

Milled the carlins: two pieces of cherry measuring 3/4" x 1-3/8" x 14'
Pre-Soaked in PVC pipe
Steamed in poly tubing for 45 minutes
Clamped in place
Removed from tubing and re-clamped to dry
