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.
