You can steam bend white oak relatively easily.
The white oak spindles are easily shaped when green and dried fairly easily (I wrote the weight in pencil on the side - when it stopped losing weight...).

I have tried bending a cherry hoop. It didn't do very well. I wouldn't even attempt to do a continuous arm hoop in cherry.
