I'm going to be bending on a hot pipe. When I tried this once before, I did buy a few practice sides from a local supplier (Madagascar Rosewood of all things), and had pretty good success bending those... but that was about a decade ago.

Those practice sides were about as far as I got with that first "build" before I ran out of money to buy the tools I needed (broke grad student), and kind of lost interest (depressed and over worked grad student).
