I inherited a childs school chair from the school I attended many moons ago
My eldest sister was the last headmistress of that school and kindly gave me two
They were stored in a garage for some ten years or so and when I fetched them out the damp (I suspect) caused the top rail to try and straighten itself , the second chair wasn't quite so bad
Now I know about steaming to bend wood but don't have a steamer, I could make up a pipe steamer I guess but it wouldn't accommodate the shape of this rail
Any suggestions on how to bend it back into shape?
Would soaking be any good?
