Overview

In this beautifully compiled book, Charlie Whinney, the UK's leading expert on the topic, shares the secrets of the unique and magical craft of steam-bending. Although his creations look quite impossible, the reader will soon discover that wood can be made to behave in remarkable ways with the application of a little heat and steam. Charlie guides you through the ecological sourcing of wood for your projects and then, with practical instructions, reveals how to create 16 steam-bent masterpieces. Form a wooden coat hanger in the embers of a campfire, create perfectly round wooden hoops using just a saucepan and a mug, or use the steam from a kettle to shape a beautiful fruit bowl.
