I'm making some bent chair legs with a 2.25 inch bending radius out of thin walnut veneer strips (1/45 inch thick). Do I need to make the form's radius (thus the bending angle of the form) to account for springback of the laminated leg after the glue up? I would like to use the forms that I made for steam bending thicker stock that had a smaller radius rather than make new ones to exact desired dimensions/angles, but I will if needed.
Thanks for the feedback,
