    Default Warped and twisted neck blank video

    I roughed out a batch of neck blanks last year and most of then turned out ok after storage...but a few decided to stress relieve themselves over the months and ended up a bit twisted..this is the 3rd one that I had to fix and here is a video of how I did it.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Obviously your feeling is this a long term solution, but I have heard that once twisted the neck always wants to return to that state. I'm interested on your take on this "Internet" opinion of necks returning to the twisted state over time.

    P.S. The reason I'm interested is that I have a Uke that was made in Vietnam and I live in Arizona. Before I could set up proper humidity control within a month the neck developed a twist like yours in the video. I was feeling that it would just be better to put a new neck on as opposed to saving a twisted neck.

    Bending with heat usually means it will stay bent..as same as bending the sides on a hot iron..Also there are loads of furniture products out there that are heat bent....so hopefully all will be well.
