    Jack, you can find them used in many cases. I'm really impressed with the one that Brian has in his shop. (smaller version that's perfect for what so many of us do)

    I hope you'll post a thread if and when you test it, Tim. Torified wood is being marketed for outdoor use pretty heavily by one of my suppliers and it would be interesting to see how you make out.

    Tom, it may work as long as the bend is gentle. You'll want to use an exterior suitable adhesive that has a long open time so you can "work the clamps"...I'd probably go with epoxy here.

    There is "roasted" and there is torrified. The latter changes the wood chemically. The former may or may not get that far. The big appeal for guitar necks, aside from possibly being more moisture...
