I liked the use of a lever! Have you done this with hardwoods?

Hey Tom,Yes he tried it with Ash and Macrocarpa with success and breakages with both. Important to avoid defects like knots and wobbly grain.

What is the maximum thickness he’s bent?

We have played with 2 inch timber and achieved good bends but obviously not very tight curves were possible.With improved jigs I believe we will bend tighter curves with thicker timber….if that makes any sense.
