It was bent...i used smal heat blower...and ironing iron to heat the wood. Also little moisture. But it was hard to get the curves. It al was like this..i heated the outer sides..and moistured the inner sides. Then applied a piece of wood between the sides. Then all the processe again. Moistured the inner sides...heated outside, applied the little longer woodpiece betweene the ends. I´l bet the steaming or cuting is alot easyer way to get the right result. Also for this instrument, the sides are about 7 mm thick, making them thinner would speed up the progress. BTW thx for comment.

I like this its thinking outside the box. Was it cut or steamed I ask myself to get the curve .
