how can I bend a 1"x8" board
Hello, I am a newbe to this forum and have a question concerning the bending of 1" dimentional lumber. I wish to bend 1"x8"x36" soft maple boards over a 24" curve with a 2' radius. The curve would occure on the 8" dimention and the project is 36" long and the radius is at each end. The method I was thinking of using was to back saw the lumber to create the curve. Can anybody give me information about doing this or the reasons I shouldn't. Any info. would be helpful. Thanks for your time.
