Bizzare, what an odd use of wood. It suggests all sorts of interesting possibilities, thanks for the link.

Very interesting possibilities with that contraption. You could make a lot of Rube Goldstein thingys or a lot of help in the shop, no more heating or steam bending wood, pretty cool Karson.

Now that does lend to some ideas of easily bending to get shapes that could have been almost impossible before. First really interesting use of that device I’ve seen so far. Thanks

Umm, the squiggle wood is very cool, but umm the tool to make it seems a bit like the guys from Festool took one too many hits of some psychedelic drugs. It appears to be a benchtop TS with a holder for a handsaw blade and can tilt in both directions. Great idea, but ahh no.

I’m sure they could think of better uses thatn to bounce balls off of it.

It does give me some ideas though.

Thanks Karson.

I predict we’re going to see somebody making wooden Slinkys with one of these.

Sorry I don’t get it it does make fancy kerfs in wood and makes wood as flexible as much cheaper plastic. Is this advancement? ok so maybe in future we could use it to bend wood without steaming which we can do with kerfing at the moment .The set up is not a great advancement in technology if at all and some price for an inverted handsaw set up Sorry it’s not for old Alistair lol
