Bending the Forefoot to Shape

Forefoot gets bent to shape.

A temporary form and bulkhead help get the shape right. Joint is tacked with epoxy between the wire stitches and will later be filleted both sides and taped before the ears are trimmed off.

Hi Georges
Is it absolute n├ęcessity for bending the forefoot to shape that you torture the ply this way?
Would'nt it go to shape by only stiching the bow, the chines and the bulkhead all together?
