Saw Kurfs

I don't know of a formula but I'm sure you could figure one out. The bottom line is the more kurfs you have, the easier and smoother the wood will bend to your desired radius. At the same time, you want to leave some wood on the inside so the glue will bond to hold your parts together. If you have a tight radius, you might also want to soak the wood for a couple of hours to soften it. This is also a perfect application for the new polyurethane glues that activate on exposure to water/moisture. They will expand and fill in the open spaces. One neat way to clamp is to take a piece of scrap particle board or plywood and cut your outside radius in it. Then you have some parallel surfaces to clamp on. Hope these suggestions help. :o)
