Preparing Green Wood For Steam Bending

When a few S Class Boats needed new ribs, URBANBOATWORKS stayed local to find its green Oak wood. We headed across the road to haul out a 120 year old white oak that came down in Storm Sandy. After setting up block and tackle we hoisted the heavy log out of the woods using our pick up truck. Processing was done the old fashion way with wedges and sledge. This insured good grain orientation wood that is essential for steam bending.
