We live in a 3-D world, so our wood projects need to share the same idea. Bending wood is not a new concept, but Earlex makes it easier for you to attain the shapes in your wood projects that you desire. To help assist you with perfect flowing designs is the new Earlex Steam Generator. The electric unit is compact, light weight, has thermal protection, and even includes instructions on how you can build your own steam box! Great for any projects like boating, furniture, instruments, and is only limited to what your imagination can come up with!
Use the power of steam with the Earlex Steam Generator to create new furniture designs and woodworking projects with bending wood. The compact electric steamer is much safer than open burner type systems, with 2 thermal protectors. The 1.3 gallon tank takes only 23 minutes to steam up and will provide 137 minutes of steaming time–plenty of steam for a small to medium size steam box. Just 8″ x 12″ in size, this steam generator is as portable as it gets.
Here are just a few items that you can make using the Earlex Steam Generator and a steam box.
