I want to bend some spalted curly maple for a head board but, i have a feeling it might not work. the peice i want to bend will be 1 1/2" thick and 5 inches wide. Im not planning on any sharp bends just something like this http://www.ibrshop.com/store/product/classic-upholstered-headboard-0. the maple was air dried not kiln dried.

Think it will bend or not? Also ive never steam bent anything before.

It will spring back some. Bent lamination's is how I would bend it.
