We spent this week steaming gunnels – not as straight forward as it looks folks
Pat had a big long pipe where we lay one gunnel. We attached 2 wall paper steamers and ‘cooked’ the wood for around 40 minutes.
Once out of the steamers all hell broke loose as we quickly clamped the wood to a ‘Gig’ – the wood bends round the gig to form the shape we need for the gunnel.
