Removing woodworking dents.

Dents, big or small, shallow or deep often befall a careless woodworker and I’ve been careless. As each leg was prepped, I noticed a dent on one side.

This wasn’t a small issue that a little sand paper would handle, but a large dent on the front face.

Grabbing an iron and a piece of an old t-shirt I proceeded to steam out as much of the dent as possible. In this case I was unable to remove it all but enough that a few plane strokes could take care of the rest.

Just informed that if I’m posting my wife’s iron on the web, I must give her credit for the tool.
