8′ cherry Bridge steamed, bent, clamped

The 8′ cherry bridge was soaked overnight, steamed in the box for 1 hour this morning and clamped into the form, where it will sit now for a week. It was not as wet coming out of the box as I had expected, but it still bent pretty easily and I (really) hope it keeps its shape when I take it out and doesn’t have any ‘spring back’ (where it sort of bounces a bit back from the bent shape). Only time will tell.
