Give your woodworking projects a twist with bent wood

May 1, 2020

In a recent video, YouTuber create demonstrates how to build a bench using bent wood.

What do you miss most about the outside world? I miss the smell of Home Depot. I miss lazily wandering up and down the aisles, gawking at new, ingenious devices and convincing myself to buy some unnecessary power tool. All I’m left with now is a head full of potential projects and only a few pieces of mismatched scrap wood in my workshop. With a little ingenuity, however, maybe I could twist and turn those scraps into something remarkable. In a recent video, YouTuber create demonstrates how to build a bench using bent wood. Not only has he created an ingenious way to steam wood without a steam box, but he has also designed a unique jig to bend perfect, repeatable wood curves.
