Wood bending can be challenging at the start; this comprehensive guide shows four essential techniques with clear step-by-step instructions to make bending wood less intimidating.

It begins with a broad general discussion of wood bending, describing the physical processes at work, and includes a chart listing the bending properties of 82 different domestic and exotic woods. Detailed chapters cover bending green wood, bending with heat, water and steam, solid-wood bent laminations, and bent panels. Each section includes instructions for carrying out a project using the technique described. A final section explains the principles involved in finishing the edges of bent panels.
