I have successfully attached the shear strip and glued the next strip the length of my Night Heron, but I have a question about steam bending.
While I needed to steam bend the sheer strip and the next strip before glueing, if the next strips fit without breaking when I dry fit them, should I still steam them?
There is a little bit of force needed to hold them into place (dry fit), but not enough to cause any sound of cracking wood.
If I don't have to steam bend my strips, I really don't want to, and I don't want to use cheater strips yet.
Thanks in advance,
