These were fun but steaming the Purple Heart was a pain. Steaming is new to me, and I had to build a steamer. I used 4” PVC and caped the ends. Steam was supplied by my turkey fryer. I cut a hole in the lid for the big 5 Gal. (just a guess, I really don’t know how big it is) frying pot. Then I ran 2” pvc from the lid to a 2” connector on the steamer pipe.
If anyone is going to try steaming, I recommend you read up on what steamer to build, how to supply steam to the steamer, and what woods work best for steaming. Purple Heart is very dense and hard to bend.
Have fun !
