    Wow is right!

    So what was the process? Is the case a bunch of pieces laminated, if so, how and when did you apply the glue?

    I used 1/8" Baltic Birch plywood. Cut it into 4.5" x 60" strips. I built a bending form and was going to steam the strips but didn't need to. I just used a spray bottle and wet down the center section of each strip. Then "pre-bent" them four at a time on one side of the form. (there are four total layers of the basic case). I allowed them to dry overnight. When I removed them from the form. they held the shape for the most part. I then just glued the first two layers and clamped them.

    I cut two "J" shaped pieces and glued them up in opposite directions for form the oval. After the first two layers had set up for a couple of hours. I glued one of the J sections to the first two. I flipped them to offset the joints. I waited about an hour because I didn't have enough clamps to glue both sides at once. After setting up over night. I popped it off of the form, and it worked great!

    Nice, thanks for the walk through. I've got a bent form project I'm thinking about doing and didn't realize the baltic ply would bend like that.

    John, that is coming out very nice! I would assume that all of the joints are staggered.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
