Stake bed truck rails

This are steam bent bed rails for a 1952 vintage stake bed truck. The steam bending took several hours of steaming due to the nature of the wood. Although we were successful in bending the rails, I would not recommend this particular wood since it strongly resists bending. Once was enough. :)

Finish: Exterior Varnish over epoxy with fine polishing to finish
