The same would apply to bamboo but no idea if you can source individual laminates.

To do so, you will ahve to do it in every individual pieces, and that will be very labour- intensive. i feel, what you guys think?

cutting them up and making them in a jig is probably not going to be worth the time. I would just make it out of aircraft plywood or something easy to work with and then glue a nice bamboo veneer.

This is also same as other plywoods, but firstly you must treat it in a steam box and stretch in a bend devise and bend it using your bending requirement.
