It takes longer but for just one or two sticks you can get by just by laying the stick across a boiling pot of water and covering it with a towel.  If you're going to make a habit of it a steam box is the way to go-especially for multiple sticks.



this is the way we use in the workshops in the local club

a purpose built steamer works better

Unless the crookedness of the stick is something I want to keep as a feature, I'll have to give straightening a try at some point. Thanks for the advice, guys. Dana
