this is how I bent some 14” oak strips. after steaming a couple of hours,
they were left in the caul over night.
but – with that slight profile, I would just cut it out with a band saw.
1/4” thick wood of that size can be found at most big box stores. (or even 1/4” plywood).
for a one night show, I would not put too much thought into it. (it is for night use, right ??).
