Would love to know how you bend it evenly after you screw it to the wood. You'd have to beat it and it would not be a nice bend. And it would be full of holes with divots all around them from deflection. Would look like crap.
T-Dogg - the 16Gauge at 6' length is not going to bend easy. It pretty much needs to go in a huge metal break. (a sheetmetal tool) Being only 6" wide does not help, hard to clamp.

They have a large sheet metal brake at the CFB Halifax auto club. I'm pretty sure it's over 6' long. I need to go and do my battery cables and alternator this week, probably Sat. We could bend them then if you don't find another place to do it.
