I am making more back scratchers and had to bend a hook on the end of the cherry blank so I tried this .
This is a little experiment that I had to try using fabric softener in the steaming water.
The set up I used is as follows .
Boild the water with the fabric softener and let the wood soak and steam for about half an hour .
I added a good shot from the bottle of fabric softener and made about a 20to1 mix .
The jig is pretty simple and made from items I had around the shop .
I am amazed how much better this worked with the fabric softener added to the water ,all four pieces of cherry measuring 2 1/4”x 3/16 ” bent without a problem around the 1 1/8” radius . Watch the video and let me know what you think .
