No, it's not bent, it's cut out of blocks of timber. A bit of jigsaw, a bit of drop saw and a belt sander to get the curve radiussed within a bulls-roar on each piece, then once it's all glued together it'll just be lots of sanding to shape it. Ideally I wanted to laminate the whole block together and bandsaw the curve, but I don't have a bandsaw, so had to figure another way around it with what I have on hand. Hopefully it'll work out!

Who doesn't love a bit of masochism? But not so much in public for me...

Yea it looks fantastic. Even better with a bit of lacquer on i think. Hopefully the underside can be seen.

Just put some pad for each cheek and leave wood showing. You can get black closed cell self sticking foam you can cut, smooth shape and stick. Would give the comfort but show the beauty of the wood.
