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

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
