Well guys, it works for bending wood. Figured I'd give it shot at un bending wood. I sure hope it works, too. 

If it doesn't, I don't suppose I can get a refund on the Bending Fluid.:blush:

Just checked with my finger tip moisture meter. Got a 22% with my right hand and 28 with the left. Probably oughta calibrate them. :lol:

Since our RH is up around 70%, I'll leave them clamped for at least a couple more days.

Finally add 3 capfuls of the De-Bending Fluid. Sometimes called Bending Fluid.

I assume this is not available in California?;)

So is this a classic case of the "right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing?":lol:

With all the stuff that applies to, it's a wonder there's anyone left alive over there.

Nail biting is over. Couldn't wait. Son and daughter in law are napping, so I had to peek. Took all the clamps off and I'd consider this a successful experiment. 

The bowed sticks are 99% flat now. The sides resting on those white boards were still pretty wet. So, they were flipped and re-clamped. Left until Monday, they'll be ready for sanding and the ebonizing can begin. 

No time was saved, but some lumber was. All in all, I'm a pretty happy camper.

Orthodoxy has no foothold in my shop.:P
