Default Wood for lattice wall.

What wood for lattice wall will be ok?
I live in central Europe.
I'm going to bend the poles. It's correct method (half more or less)
Anyone advise how to do it right?

The lath on my small yurt is 5/16ths by 1.5" hem/fir construction lumber. At that size steaming is not required it readily bends and twists. Premium wall lattice around here in the standard 3/4" x 1.5" dimension would be made from clear Douglas Fir. I don't have a clue whether U.S. manufacturerers steam lath that size.

I don't know squat about steaming wood. As for technique, I suggest watching youtube videos on bending yurt wall lattice? Based on what I have seen-not done-they need to be very pliable when pulled from the staem box. That means extremely hot so gloves will be on when removing the lath from the steamer. Stacking as in your photo will keep the pieces drying in a proper orientation to imo that is a good idea. Maybe someone else with bending experience will comment. Good luck.

For sure if large unbent 'dry' lath run on a 45 degree angle they will make the characteristic hyperbolide 'cooling tower' shape. I definitely don't like that look. Running lath much more vertically alleviates this hyperbolide shape.

I like bent lath in Mongolian yurts. The wall is plumb in the erected 45 degree position and this to my eye is way more beautiful then the hyperbolide shape. Even on the short wall height of Mongolian yurt, the wall has a very pronounced curve when collapsed for transport.
