I've been steaming cedar strips for my Night Heron, and I need some imput from your expertise...
I cut, shape, and dry fit my cedar strips before steaming them, and they seem to fit really tight!
But then, whenever I put them on my forms to dry into shape they seem to be slightly longer than when they were dry.
Is it my imagination, or do some strips swell when the are steamed, and then return to their normal size when they dry?
I don't think I'm going nuts, but my family and neighbor may disagree as usual!
