I'm approaching the point in my build where I'm going to be doing my first bending of wood. I'm in Canada, the house is sealed up tight for the coming winter, and as such a kettle or pot of perpetually boiling water is a big no-no (mold and mildew).
I read that the microwave might be a vaible option for me. Does anyone have any experience they can share? Soak the wood first? Wrap it in wet paper towel? Roughly how many seconds/minutes to start with?
