Then, mark the wood, and cut in to your desired points along the wood panelling. Again do not cut the wood all the way, otherwise you'll break or cut through the wood. you just want to cut enough to make the board flexible.
Next step is to make Curving shape from a piece of wood. This will act as a jig for bending the work piece, so the curve must be as deep as you want the curve in the work piece to be. Save the piece of the wood that you make the cut out for.
Position the wood that you have made the incisions in to make flexible in the jib and then clamp together and allow to sit overnight. Wood will be shaped as you desire when you return.
