I've heard that it's a bit easier because the birch bends more then mdf, it wont just crack

Tcab did/does it iirc. same concept as the mdf, make relief cuts and bend then fill the gaps with some woodglue and sawdust.



or stick it in your pool :rolleyes:

That all depends on how much of an angle you want it to have.

Fixed one more time for a "Day after Mother's Day" joke :D

MDF is the worst wood to do kerf cuts on. BB will be much easier...
