Bending Mahogany Sides

Recommended Posts

5mm (0.2") sounds thick - take it this isn't an acoustic, which would normally be around 2mm (0.08") or so.

Can't help with 5mm, but I've taken 2mm ribs to 12mm radius without any indication that that's the limit (though have to watch for creasing) and some mandolin makers bind Gibson-style florentine headstocks with wood which is a far tighter bend.
