It's MDF. That line is from the router which I sanded out.

What material did you use for your forming blocks?

Pictures makes it look like there are two pieces of wood, with a break at the radius tangent point?

Rear rib. Did it with a 10" disc sander I picked up at harbor freight on clearance.

Already has the spring back too... do that on the band saw? Is that a rear rib?
