When doing curved stringing, I lightly clamp a Teflon-coated curling iron in my vise and use it to bend the strings before gluing them into place. The curling iron works well even with double- or triple-layered string inlays, and i won’t burn the wood. If you tape the ends of the stringing together as it cools down, it will hold its curve afterward. Nancy A. Maloney, Buffalo, NY
