they first heated it up with warm moist air, the wood was almost hot to the touch. Then they made jigs out of dowels and then slowly bent the wood into whatever shape they needed.

I would think you could soak the wood in water, then slowly bend the wood to make the curvature. Do it alittle at a time and then re soak with water each time you make a more demanding bend.
