Steam

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — peteblair @ 8:45 am

Hi all. Any Wood turners out there?

I am trying with only partial success to dry rough turned green bowls, platters etc with steam.

Until recently I thought I was on the right page but I am now turning some green Cherry and it seems that everything I steam cracks. It appears that I am drying them rather than steaming them.

Has anyone tried this method with success?

Here are a few shots of my system. I am using a wall paper steamer to inject steam in to a pretty rough cedar box.
