Today I used my bending iron to bend the sides. I originally
had intended to make a bending form, but then changed my mind
because I was anxious to get on with this uke! (There's always
time to make a form later, should I want to make more ukes!)
Besides, it's been a while since I've bent sides by hand ---
and it is a rather satisfying process, when you do it right!
After I bend the side, I clamp it in my mold to further "set"
