Tips From A Shipwright: How to Steam Bend In A Plastic Bag

Well, if this isn’t one of the most clever ideas you’ve never thought of – then please tell us what is! People invent plenty of crazy ways to steam bend wood when building or restoring wooden boats, but few have used or even considered using a plastic bag. Also extremely clever is how Lou demonstrates his method for progressive bevel cutting. Check it out!

If Louis Sauzedde isn’t the ultimate wooden shipwright and movie star, then who could it be? He has turned wooden boat restoration into a video series attracting lots of attention and fixing up some special boats along the way. We love that he attacks his projects with confidence and traditional sense, but is not afraid to try out a new material or new idea that challenges everything he was taught about his profession.

Follow along with the rest of this 4 part (so far) video series on the restoration of “Remora” here and delight in watching Lou work and in his super wicked Rhody accent. So killa!
