Painted Hitchcock chair needing a new seat and tightening up of all joints. It also needs a new bent edge band around the seat. Here is how I bent the replacement: The steamer set up at right is a pvc tube with steam pushed in the low end by a kettle on a camping stove. Below right I have pulled the end cap showing the blank in the steam. This is pulled and quickly wrapped around a premade form, below center, and clamped in place and left for a few days to take the shape while other work was done. Below left is the chair re-woven and ready for the band to be installed, trimmed and finally, painted to match.
