I have a project that I would like to put a simple (round over or ogee) profile on. I plan to use oak plywood as I would like to stay away from the cost of solid wood. The piece is has both concave and convex bezier curves. Not too gnarley but I’m not sure if I can bend a piece of 3/4” square red oak over the curves or not.
The goal is to try and stay away from the cost of solid wood construction and bent lamination due to the cost of material and time. At least for me.
The piece conssists of 2 layers oak ply stepped about 3/4” in so that I get a layers look on the profile of 1 1/2 ”. The piece is in the shape of a shield, geometric not organic. 48” high and 24” wide. Here is an image of my sketch up for the outline.
Thanks in advance
