Anyone using a steam box and if so, did you build it ? Considering make one from 4” PVC material.

Which wood species did you find easiest to work with? Ash, Basswood, Poplar, White Oak, Mahogany

I have adapted a wallpaper steamer and a length of 22mm copper pipe to steam strips of walnut to plank my Bristol pilot cutter worked a treat and with size of the tank you get a good 30-45min use
