Usually to bend wood you need to steam it and let it cool to a form. If what you are talking about it would involve two different radii or compound curves. You would be better off doing this in aluminum and possibly covering it with upholstery. Or do you want the wood look? If so it might have to be done in symmetrical pieces from side to side and use an upholstered divider between the panels.
