It's a work in progress. I've had to make a few alterations as I go and try to bend sticks. It was quite
simple to make. Bottom is two 3/4 inch pieces of Baltic birch screwed together for weight and
strength. Holes measured and drilled with forstner bit. I figured the diameter of the round would
be good at 5". Dowels into holes to pin the work in place. I use my workmate bench as the bench.
I just boiled this piece of chestnut to bend but next up to build will be a steam canister from pvc.

Thanks Rodney it wasn't quite as simple as I thought. There is a fair bit of pressure as I found out bending wood so reinforcements were needed but it's quite fun setting it all set up and seeing some results.

Like the jig Sean! Make sure you let us see your steamer! I've wanted to do something similar.
