Collected together a Hema kettle, our old
camping hot plate, a small piece of plastic drain
pipe and some old rags.
Cut the strips - inner stem is Oregan Pine,
outer stem is American walnut. Tied 3 inner stems and 3 outer stems
together with tape, steamed for about 1/2 hour.
and suprisingly easily bent
the strips and clamped them to the mould

After drying the wood, glued the inner stems
and the outer stems. Used parcel tape on the layer between inner and
outer to avoid glueing together. Glued with epoxy mixed with West
405 filleting blend.
Now I have 4 stems.
