    I stand corrected, it's been a long time.
    How can I delete the wrong info?

    And I agree with Gil, you have to have straight grain wood.

    Just a short update. Bent a few more stems, one I bent the wrong way. Bent the 3/4" instead of the 7/8". Opps! Well the last one bent ok and is drying. Too cold to work in the garage this week , so maybe next week I can get back at it.

    Hey...that's my stunt. I've bent ribs upside down on the outside of the hull. With the ribs you can actually re-steam and re-bend if you spot your mistake right away...the stems...hmmm...write that off to experience.
