The trick is to stick the tape to the wet wood while it is flat on the bench and then use the tape to wrap the piece around the form. The tape acts like a backing and helps to keep the wood from splitting. Also make sure the wood is really well soaked. Give it a try, it's pretty fun!I am amazed by the way you got that balsa to bend that far all the way to the pointed tip. Even with wetting it. It would have cracked if it was me trying it
Oh, and leave it at least over night. It's kinda like a pizza I guess; if you let it cook all the way it's great. Take it out early and it's mushy and disappointing...
