RE: Steam bending questions

The plastic pipe will get soft. You can use steel or a box made of 2x6's. The crab cooker will make plenty of heat. The purple heart will steam well. Teak does not steam well at all. The oils in teak prevent the hot water from softening the cell walls. On a scale of 1 to 100 teaks steamability is around 3. David
