I was wondering how you closed the screw holes but a fellow LJer already asked. That is really cool. Thanks for sharing the video

Another neat trick you can do with steam. If you have a rivet setter for making “domed” rivets you can use it to punch the background of a relied carving or picture frame etc. Make sure the wood gets well depressed. Then really sand it down. After sanding apply plenty of steam and the domed wood you depressed will raise above the sanded wood giving you a nice “pebbled” result.
