Bend it like spaghetti.
Andy, could you share some additional pictures and information, or a site, about the structure of your ‘Steam Cabinet’ shown in this video?
Thanks for sharing. – Len

Hey Len. Info for now on steam box is it is a sheet of alloy folded into a 300 square section. The outside is covered in cork and then a layer of hesyin or sack cloth. This is cladded in 18mm ply. The door is alloy too and has a rubber seal. Important to let the unit breath to allow steam to move through the box. Don’t ever try to create a pressure cooker of you might severely burn yourself! The steam unit is a wall paper stripper for around $180.00 NZ. Not much else to it.The strap on the back of the timber being bent helps hold the fibres as they are stretched and the form also helps control the fibers as they are compressed.
