A friend's invention.






How to steam wood for bending on a jobsite:
After disconnecting a radiator. 3' length of pipe with a valve at the far end to release a small about of pressure.
We left 1/2" quarter-round in for about an hour. Turned the thermostat to 70F. Tacked the pieces down and let them dry out. Worked perfectly.

Of course it helps if it's 30°F outside
