How to make a long steam chamber for wood bending. This steam chamber could be used for any project where you needed to bend long pieces of wood. In my case I wanted to bend the 5ft double bow of a continuous arm windsor chair. As you will see in the video this is an inexpensive and easy to make steam chamber that will give consistent results. The purpose of the steam chamber is to heat up the wood so that it becomes plastic in nature, and can then be easily bent over a wooden former. Once the wood cools and dries, it becomes permanently bent, so is ideal for making chair backs and such like.
