To bend steamed wood successfully you need a strap clamp.

The strap keeps the wood on the outside of a bend from stretching and failing. Steamed wood can be compressed a remarkable amount, but it will stretch less than 1/2 of 1% without failing.

For simple bends (i.e., one or more bends in the same plane and in the same direction) you need a shop-made form and fixed end stop, plus a strap clamp (adjustable end stop and strap).

Strap clamps are available for material up to either 1 1/4" square or 2" square. Each strap clamp comes with:

  • 10' of steel strap
  • an adjustable end stop
  • a ratchet wrench
  • a socket
  • an instruction booklet


Only the bolts for the fixed end stop are provided and you always make your own forms.

20' straps, as well as extra lengths of 10' straps, are available.

Made in Canada.
