Do the way old ship builders....

bent wood planking around the hulls.

Soak the wood in water, make a jig with dowels and all to conform to the bend of the actual application.

Keep the wood moist and it will begin to make the bend onits own without stress. It takes time.

As you have the material in the jig, a hair dryer on warm will speed up the process.
