Steam Bending

Steam bending is a woodworking technique where strips of wood are steam heated using a steam box. The applied heat and moisture makes the wood pliable enough to easily bend around a former to create a specific shape....

Laminate Bending

Lamination is the process of bending many thin parts together and holding them in the desired shape until the glue between them dries. Once dry, the resulting part will pretty much hold its shape forever....

Design

Expert consultation in the development of aesthetically pleasing bends, structural limitations and most importantly a fully functioning product. We will work with you to get the best possible results from your chosen timber....

Why Steam Bend?

Durability

You can always cut a curved shape out of a square one, but what you may gain in simplicity, you will lose in strength and durability. Both steam bending and lamination have the benefit of manipulating the wood so the grain follows the curve and is continuous across the whole part. This is especially important on structural elements like chair legs and backs, when the curved piece is going to be supporting weight and taking stress....

Economy

Steam bending produces less waste than reductive methods. Bending a single piece rather than cutting the shape from a larger mass, retains the continuous long-grain pattern, there are no glue lines, and it doesn’t waste material....

Aesthetic

Steam bending is an impressive technique, offering seamless, durable components. The steam bending process produces finished parts with the best overall appearance, with continuous end-to-end grain and no visible glue line.
