Making two Federal side tables with serpentine top and drawer fronts edged in solid maple banding. The banding is about 1/8" X 1/8" and, can fairly well make the serpentine bends.
I soak my AIR dried wood in boiling water when making Shaker oval boxes.
Just wondering if soaking the maple banding in boiling water and, then, taping in place to dry would help. I think the maple has been kiln dried and I am not sure if soaking in boiling water is going to help them bend.
