Cut your wood strips through a straight-grained edge, not on the face-grain side.[1] This will help you put back the strips together with minimal interruption. If you want to disguise the kerfing, mix together glue and sawdust (or an appropriate wood filler) and fill the spaces left in the bent wood. With each wood bending method, the wood will relax a little after you remove if from the form.
The steam box can be a wooden box that you construct to hold the wood to be bent, or it can be a piece of PVC or other kind of pipe. Different kinds of wood are springier than others and different cuts can withstand more force.

Some prefer to clamp as they form the wood; clamping piecemeal may give you more flexibility and control. Cut the length of your wood strips to be a little longer than your necessary final measurement. This way, if the wood strips get dropped or rearranged, you'll be able to tell which order your strips belong in. Take this into consideration and exaggerate the curve on your form a little to compensate for this effect. From the early nineteenth century to the present day, furniture designers have exploited both the sensuality and strength of curved materials.

In Wood Chair by Marc Newson (1988), two dozen strips of wood are fastened along a set of horizontal slats to create a bulging plane that passes through itself to create the seat, back, and supporting legs.
Charles and Ray Eames furthered the complexity of the curve, using double contours (as in a potato chip) to yield beauty, strength, and comfort. Verner Panton’s Stacking Side Chair (1960) combines seat, back, and legs in one curved form; it was one of the first chairs produced from a single piece of synthetic material.
