Gene covered it pretty well. It would be better if you could see it in person so you could better understand how it bends and what the surfaces look like. The picture in my avatar is a project I did with Bending Board.

I made a form to shape the bending board to so I could shape it and laminate the layers. I did two layers to form the outside shape and a third layer to make the inner shape for dividing the drawer openings. Once the layers where glue together and clamped and dried, I could remove the form and it kept it’s shape. I used Ambrosia Maple veneer for the exterior with solid Ambrosia Maple for the face frame, drawer fronts and back. Interior was painted black.

It’s pretty easy to work with and you can make some pretty tight curves with it if you “flex” it some before trying to fit it to a jig or form.

BTW. It’s a lot of fun trying to handle a 4×8 sheet of that stuff the way it bends. LOL.
