How many different ways can you think to bend a piece of wood? Sure, there’s steam bending. And bent laminations. And cold bending. And… well, there are lots of different ways to bend wood.
One of the most complete sites I have ever seen is this one. The author doesn’t just list the wood bending methods, he goes into detail about why they work, what equipment is required to do this and the best way to succeed. It’s an impressive and thorough collection, and worth a visit for sure.
