Oh I hope I do this right (bending sides)

Thought I would post this before I bend them. No plan B if I mess up.

Managed to get the pieces all joined without too much stress. Being that I had many joins to make and I did not have much in the way of extra to sand out if they were not close to perfect I modified my process. They turned out fine so now the next stressful operation, bending the sides. Softwoods do not like to bend much and will crease and crush on the inside turns. SuperSoft II really helps out from the one time I used it. Don't know what the proper temperature for using it is for me, not like I know where my thermometer is. I'll just listen for the water sizzling.

Some up to date pictures. Might as well take them before disaster falls upon me. What I have to work with.



I need to build a bender.



Thought of something while sitting here. Should thin out the cutaway side some. Sometimes it pays to step back and give yourself a time to think. Wish me luck.

Well no cutaway today.

If I trim it off I might have enough to do a normal side. Hope I can get it bent.
