Thanks for the tips everyone…I will for sure go thinner. The best I will be able to do is to make my 3/4 inch lamination out of 4 pieces instead of 3. This will not be quite 1/8”, but better than 1/4”. I only have 4 pieces to work with on the bent piece…long story, but can’t make any more right now.

I drew out my full scale pattern tonight, and it’s not that tight of a bend. Hopefuly it won’t be too big of a deal.

I’ve have made quite a few bent parts in the past…did 6 cathedral windows, but I was not worried about 500 lbs of string tension pulling on the windows :)
