This is my first post, but I’ve been reading here for a while. There is a lot of great knowledge to be found on this forum, so I thought I would post a question that I can’t find the answer to (I’m fairly novice with woodworking).
I was looking at maybe trying to duplicate this toy and build one for my son, but I can’t figure out how they shaped the plywood (marine grade, according to their website) for the front forks:
I’ve had some experience with vacuum pressing veneers, and using foam molds in a vacuum bag to make my own shaped plywood, but those bends are nothing like these. Is this something that steaming could accomplish? Or is there some industrial grade technique that I don’t know about?
