FormingWood, (patent application). We have developed a process in which we are able to form solid wood three-dimensionally by pressure steaming. Furthermore, in this process we can press the wood at the same time, beyond the usual bending process, and thus increase the material density significantly. Thus we are able to compress wood (hardwood) by up to 28% without the use of chemical aids. Furthermore, we (Walter Amrhyn from Switzerland) can imprint detailed structures into the surface in this process.
