Steaming Out a Dent

Posted by Mac on Nov 18, 2005

Hi Crew!

Haven't asked a silly in a while, and things are way too quiet.

I've got some untreated 4mm okoume with a rather significant ding in it. The veneer isn't broken, and the dent's about 1.5 inches long and about 1/2 inch wide.

How about raising it?

I thought about a damp towel and a hot steam iron (when Marjolaine's out of the house, of course). Then I worried that this might cause de-lamination.

Any ideas?
