    Hi, LEPA!

    I just titled and moved your question that you had posted as a response to someone else's really old question to a new thread so that your question will get noticed as being your own. This place doesn't work the same way that a chat site does. So, if someone wants to post a new question that's not a reply to the original question at the very top of the page, it's best to be starting a new thread.

    Concerning your question, and I'm searching through my memory of long ago here, in my experience, you would go about bending the wood by soaking it for a very long time in water that also has some linseed oil in it is how you go about doing that. The linseed oil will help to keep the wood flexible.
