I'm about to bend up some OM sides using my electric bender.
The Brazilian rosewood seems particularly dense and hard, harder than other sides I have. Would you guys thickness sand to about .90 for bending this wood? Could I go down to .085 and maintain a safety margin? I would not go thicker, it probably would not work. Thinner and I'm not sure about it's chances of cracking...
Seems like .90 might be a good compromise. Any thoughts?
