bending wood

In the 70's I built 4 model t speedsters, I had access to a school metal shop, so I made mine from sheetmetal, At the same time when I was in N Calif a guy was bending 1/2 in boat plywood enough to make the curved seats , Idon't know where you can get the material today, but as Dan said you need a good form. My nephew in calif was making skim boards that kids use at the beach, he had forms and a big frame made from 4 X 4's and glued and laminated the thin ply and a 12 ton Hyd jack to press them.
