Simple (or not) trick for making bends in wood:Cut across the piece from the side you want to curve to almost through to the far side. Apply wood glue in the cut. Bend wood carefully so that the cut ends move toward each other. Clamp and let dry. Measure angle. Repeat close by the first cut until the desired angle is reached. The trick is figuring how much wood to leave so that the bend does not splinter. The varies by type of wood being used. Soaking the wood left at the joint can help it bend, just leave the wood to be joined dry.When all cuts are made and the glue is dry, sand the curves of both sides. Fill any remaining gaps.
