Question: how can solid wood bend? By producing costly and time consuming moulds? Or how about using Bendywood®? Developed by the Candidus Prugger Company, an international producer of decorative components in solid hardwood based in Italy, Bendywood® is solid hardwood that can be easily bent without moulds, enabling you to reduce working costs, increase productivity and improve quality. Thin sections of the wood can be bent by hand; with thicker sections, clamps, pulleys or pipe bender may be needed. For cutting and sanding, the material can be machined as normal wood. Producing permanently flexible solid wood seems revolutionary, yet this notion has been around for quite a while. In 1917 the first record of a patent for making pliable wood by steaming and longitudinal compression was recorded in Berlin. It was in 1990 that Candidus Prugger bought the rights and further refined the technology, making the wood more consistent and more efficient to produce. Now the company holds an average of 500 cubic meters in stock, with various lengths available from 65'' for oak, ash and maple to 86.6'' for beech. The company can even produce sections that are jointed end to end to produce lengths up to 21.65'. The biggest section is about 4''x4''. Bendywood® is ideal for handrails (customized helical and spiral staircases), table edges (round and oval tabletops) and baseboards (round walls and columns), but the company is already developing the material to enable it to be used in a wider range of furniture. Decorative Components is the official US distributor of the Bendywood. Main sections are stocked in High Point and special products come from Italy every 2 weeks. Bendywood® comes in raw blanks 4''x4'' or in already shaped profiles (more tha 500 types!!)
