    For thick stock you will need a temp of 212 degree fahrenheit to steam oak lumber so that it will not spring back over a long period of time.
    Wood grain has its own memory set into each individual piece.
    Thin laminated pieces are the best way to avoid springback. Most wood glues will take 175 to 250 psi clamping pressure for hardwoods. Do a sample piece first.
