    video - bench from one board (in one piece!) Mike Jarvi

    Just found this video linked off of make magazine:

    This documents the process used by Mike Jarvi to make a steam-bent bench from one piece of wood. I'll warn you that it's 15 minutes long! But wow, what an interesting process. He makes it look easy now, but wow I bet it took a long time to develop the process!
    There's usually more than one way to do it... ........

    Thanks Art for sharing and the 15 minute warning.

    He sure has his setup sorted out for what he wants to do. When he first started i had no idea what his work was all about. I was thinking workbench and saw the slap and i said to myself wow hes gonna make a bench with wet wood that thick. Now i have to say I am embaressed

    Great work he does. I looked at the gallery of pics and fantastic pieces. I bet he dont go hungry when you do woodworking like that.

    What a great advert for the WoodMizer saw guys. Oh i wish I had one of those and lived on 5 acre wooded lot.
