It’s an easy project and makes a good gift item that is appreciated by all age groups .
When making one of these make sure that the wood you are using has good parallel edge grain direction to the face and some experimenting with different species of wood and steaming time is required as all wood reacts different .
The strap is also very imported as pressure must be applied because wood does not like to stretch but can be compressed and this is what prevents cracking of the wood .
Have fun experimeting and learning it took me a while to get it right and still have some failures along the way .
