    This same idea could be used to build a wood steamer for bending wood. An electric tea pot could be placed under the flower pot with the box on top used to hold the wood items You want to steam bend. Of course, the box would have to be built to fit Your wood items. Great idea!!

    to steam wood for bending, you might consider pvc pipe with a few fittings - assuming you are bending longer, narrow strips.

    Do you have a detailed instructions list and materials list for this and how each section of this works? I'd really like to build one of these.

    I would have made the smoker box out of NEW cedar wood not used pallets that could have god knows what has spilled on them over the years.

    Is the smoke box made of "old pallets"? Those are heavily saturated in pesticides. I wouldn't normally say anything but when it comes to cooking.....

    The pallet wood is only for aesthetic ... the cooking (somking) chamber is only ceramic
