Default Bending: Sides

In this sequence the sides are being bent over the 00-12 mold. Larry uses a heat blanket and a spot of water. Once bent, the sides are placed in a cooling jig which preserves their shape while they cool.

The first bend is the waist. The side is then flipped and the bend placed concave up in the waist of the mold.

Now the sides are bent into shape. Some of the wood figure is visible.

And into the cooling jig...

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
