The floors are in, the planks are pre-finished…it is time for framing. I carefully selected straight grained white oak which was not kiln dried, and was as “green” as possible. I then milled it, sanded it, and knocked down the edges. I then enlisted a few friends and set up the steam box. After an appropriate length of time in the steam box, the white oak becomes pliable and able to take a bend not possible otherwise. Extra hands make this task easier. The frames are attached to the planks with copper rivets.
