Nice Curvy Bit O Wood

Today I lobbed some wood into the steam box for about 6 months and then used the nail gun and about 2 boxes of nails on it to put the finish on the curve of the former.
After touching it up with some sandpaper it looked good enough to sell to a pikey for herrings and a brand new Commodore 64k.

Then I used the thicknesser machine and took down some red deal to about 2.5mm for practise bending by hand with an electric bending iron. wood was then soaked in water to stop it from scorching up but it seems alright for a first attempt.
