Your 1st Choice for Steam Bending Timber, Laminating and Joinery
Two big advantages of steam Bending are speed and therefore lower cost. Unlike laminating or cutting to shape on a band saw and then finishing, the steam bent timber can be shaped as a straight length. For instance on a spindle moulder or router. Once the timber is bent it is virtually ready to use.
- This means lower cost to you and faster turnaround.
- It also means no unsightly joins.

Other Benefits of Steam Boxes
If you ever have timber of “questionable” origins like recycled timber, running it in a steam box for the same time as you would use to steam it kills any unwanted hitch hikers. For example – Termites, borers and moulds.
Not much survives 100 deg C for that length of time.
Other than the cost of the Gas, we offer this as a FREE service for small personal use quantities.
Some timbers respond very well to steam if you are trying to remove the bark from timber. This is on a trial and error basis however. Again, we off this as a FREE service. Just pay for the cost of the Gas.
Please bear in mind that we are restricted by the size of the steam box so it is not applicable to slabs.
