Good Tuesday to everyone out there in blog land! Early on Chris built a steam box for rib-bands ribs and planking. It has all sorts of neat-o features including this slick temp gauge To steam wood you need to heat a box to between 160 deg F and 200 deg F with steam. Then an hour of cook time for every inch of thickness. Our rib-bands are basically 1" thick so a little over an hour is premo.
Here are some snaps of the clamps going on.

All in all it was a productive day in the shop. I would have had more pics but the camera died mid afternoon. Technology can be a real @%!! %@@ (*&^ rat bas$#!@^, eh?
