I want to make a super-strong curved hammock stand using yellow cedar. The most affordable wood I can find comes in 1x6 dimensions.
The curve will have a radius of approx 8ft, total wood length of 19ft and will be made of 8 layers of 1x6.
Does this sound feasable? Or should I try to find some thinner yellow cedar stock?
If need be, would steam bending the wood help it form to the lamination?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
