It is doable for sure. If you are using a standard grade lam. (.065) You will be happier with a 1 1/2 inch min. radius. You will also want to use a heat gun or at least a blow dryer on high to warm up the area to be bent and warm alittle beyond the tangient point as well. You may also want to sand the backside (bend area) to thin it up a bit. NOTE: A typical kitchen counter top with radius corners will usually be a 1 1/2 R. Without heating you might crack 3 out of five attempts using standard grade. Results do vary with manufacturer of lam. Good luk JB
