I am interested in using steam bending techniques at our college but have been told by a reputable source that it is very difficult to accomplish at our altitude of over 5000 ft. elevation. I am not sure the reasoning but suppose it has to do with the boiling point of water and its ability to plasticise the woods fibers. I’ve looked in a couple of publications but could not find any indication that I can’t use this technique here. Is there anyone who has had experience with this? I appreciate your responce.
