Sal's Flamenco ~ Bending sides

The Paulownia sides await bending over hot pipe against template.

Before that, each side is soaked for about 5 mins in a custom sized tray of hot water.

The treble side is completed.

The bass side is also completed. They have a few light masking taped down to retain their shape. and are left overnight to return to equilibrium moisture content of 50% relative humidity before assembly.
