Bending the Sides – Uri Geller? Eat your heart out mate!

Thought I’d update you on progress of the four guitars I started last week. The side bending went well – as you can see they are all roughly guitar shaped. It is a great feeling when the wood bends – it should snap! But it doesn’t!

The sides are soaked in water for 10-20mins then applied to the hot bending iron with a little gentle pressure. The heat creates steam which does the work of softening the wood. You can feel it ‘go’ almost like it’s softening like plastic would……Except it’s wood…….Now That’s Magic……(guitar magic-DVD’s are available)…..You can choose to believe all that but really I bent these sides using only the power of my mind. ….wooha…..wooha..woohahahah…(coff)…
