Try Craft Stick Bending

I found a new craft to add to my reportoire... Craft Stick Bending. Looks like a fun way to spend a rainy day (And we get lots of those!) Anyway, wander on over to and see what all there is to make! I can't wait to try my hand at bending yard sticks!

Hi Rob I'm the inventor of Craft Stick Bending. Thanks for linking my site. The yard stick bending has a few special tricks I could share if you e-mail me. I hope to create a DVD with advanced bending skills and sell with the perfect craft sticks to bend. Not all stick are created equal. I've been working with this idea for 2 year and have many techniques include doing right angles. That one will be on the DVD.

Local Inventor Introduces the New Craft of Craft Stick Bending™ at Puget Sound Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition

Seattle, WA
Brad Griffith, owner of IMPACT Product Development & Marketing, LLC

from Sequim, Washington, has invented and will introduce his latest creation, Craft Stick Bending™, at the Puget Sound Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition being held at the Museum of Flight in Seattle on February 11, 2012.

Craft Stick Bending™ is the new art, craft and engineering of bending, molding and shaping craft wood of all kinds, for the purpose of making crafts, toys, gifts and more. “In more than three years of research and development, we have discovered nothing similar in terms of developing these kinds of skills and passion to inspire creativity in young minds,” said Griffith. “Our how-to tips and tricks DVD will show an all new twist to gift and craft making”. Local and national craft stores, hobby shops and web sites will carry the DVDs.

Craft Stick Bending™ is sponsoring the Bridge Building Competition by providing the 40 thousand food grade, made in the USA popsicle sticks used in this engineering feat. High School teams from around western Washington will make popsicle stick bridges and test them in a hydraulic press smashing hours of hard work. See more information and photos at

Griffith hopes that future competitors will use his bending skills to build the popsicle stick bridges of the future. “Our goal here at Craft Stick Bending™ is to inspire and encourage young minds towards the S.T.E.M. fields to create tomorrow’s engineers”.
