I bent the ply dry and use nails wood glue and screws .

Step 2:

A lot of sanding and some wood filler plus I used a nail punch to try to hide the nails

Step 3:

The door for the side was for access from the side.

I use Japanese Stain and Marine Varnish for the finish

Hooroo

Really like the build! how did you get the wood to bend into the desired shape? thanks

it simple you use a strap with a ratchet glue and tighten up the strap then nail

each side wall is screw to the floor and the side walls hold the shape the floor is 9mm ply.
the outer skin is glued and screwed to the floor and I use straps to hold the shape and wood nails and water proof wood glue
