Frank will unlock the mysteries of steam bending during this 1 hour presentation, from choosing your wood and building your own steamer to building the proper forms. Frank will bring along his steamer and will actually steam bend a few different furniture pieces during the demo. He will also bring along a couple different chairs that incorporate the steam bent pieces for you to see firsthand. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at steam bending, you will not want to miss this great opportunity to see this demonstration!
