The very first Viking 3 ply 2 pc steam bent rim. Made from the Great American Steam Bending Machine. "G.A.S.B.M."
Not For Sale. I do not sell these yet. I'm still fine tuneing the Steam Bending Machine.

This rim is made from 2pc of wood and Swiss rolled and glued while bending.

Glenn, when you say "2 pc"...do you mean large enough outer diameter to turn for a 2 piece flange?

Thanks, Scott

There would also be a market for single ply rims for minstrel style makers, and two ply for open back makers.

I would think mostly 12 inch rims.
