    The wood is so hot that it seems to dry out very quickly, Since you brought it up, the next set I bend I'll check the moisture with a meter before and after bending.

    My new method for bending sides!

    I made a new system for bending sides, here's a few pics.

    I steamed the wood for 25 minutes at 212 degrees, the sides were 0.090 thick, they bent like hot butter in the jig.
    No warping...

    Yes it is a hand bending iron, I made it out of a piece of pipe and a electric charcoal lighter, I have a rheostat on it to adjust the temperature. The wood that I'm trying to bend is 2.5mm thick.

    Bending iron temperature?

    What temperature does the bending iron need to be? I assume there is an ideal temperature for the wood to bend with out scorching it to bad.

    Thanks!
