While working out problems for a big bench contract, I realized by soaking shop made plys in water for a few minutes makes bent laminations take and hold a more accurate shape with zero springback.  Springback is when a bent lamination or steam bent part doesn't quite hold the exact shape of the form and generally isn't a problem if your form accounts for it.  By adding a step of soaking and pre bending in the actual bending form the result is perfect.  I use Pro-Glue, a veneer resin glue that mixes with water.  It is super rigid when dry and doesn't show in the finish.  I love it.
