I’d bent the parts to a tight radius on a 1/2” copper tube
heated with a torch or electric element. Spritzing with
water helps. If the wood is oversaturated by soaking it
can be weakened.

It may be possible to cut the veneers to 1/2” wide,
spritz, coil around the tube and heat for a few minutes.
Blowing compressed air on the fresh bend disperses
the heat and moisture and helps set the bend.
