Wood bending is intriguing to the vast majority of woodworkers, but until now most have not had access to the information they need to add it to their repertoire. Wood Bending Made Simple, a highly visual book and DVD, changes that. It features step-by-step instruction on some of the most common techniques.

Expert Lon Schleining explains and demonstrates both steam bending (where steam relaxes wood fibers so they can be shaped when clamped to a bending form) and bent lamination (where thin strips of wood are glued together, then clamped to a bending form). Schleining shows just how easy it can be to master these techniques, even using relatively low-tech equipment.

Lon Schleining is also the author of Treasure Chests, The Workbench, and The Complete Manual of Wood Bending. He has written extensively on tool and shop-related subjects for Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding. A licensed contractor, he builds custom staircases.
