Bam Bam, you could make a simple jig out of a piece of wood and a few short dowels for those bent picks. Boil/steam them and place in the jig to dry, you could make several at a time

Thanks, all.

Mike, that's essentially what I did. I didn't have time to fabricate a jig so I ended up clamping the hot skewers around the corner of a big plank of oak. I'm definitely making a jig if I need to bend more in the future.

Here's a pic (of a pick) in situ with a Fog Cutter from last night's party:

Nice!
I like the Asian Love Knot ones on the previous page. May need steal that idea for my South Korea themed Olympics Party in February.
