A.) rip multiple cuts with a table saw through to the last layer of ply, soak wood in water, bend then epoxy in the cuts so it keeps its form.


B.) rip strips of the ply on angle to form the bend. Say 6 strips at 15. Then glue the strips together to and sand the edges for a smooth curve.

Below I have attach a picture of the settee. Any tips or ideas would be appreciated.
I am not certain, but I think that my corner cushions in a banquette have no solid back, just the foam. I will check later this week when I'm on the boat and revert.
