Riving small pieces of solid wood to rough size thickness
would be a good idea too. If riven, runout becomes
essentially a non-issue. Riving a straight edge and
then band sawing blanks also will work with small pieces.
The further you get away from the riven edge, the
more runout you’d get in the sawn pieces.

Grain runout occurs in 2 dimensions of a board or piece
of veneer. You’d want to minimize it in both dimensions
for optimal bending success.
