As a new builder I didn't realize that I was using the bending heat tool incorrectly all along. This video demonstrates a method that really works very well. I wet the plank briefly and start bending and it is amazing how easily the plank forms to whatever shape you need.


Of course i learned this when I was 3/4 done. Aghhh!  :angry:


Hopefully this may help others new to building.
