planks and is quite handy as most of the bits are already trimmed and planed on at least one side.
first i laminated strips in a press mould to make up the main door arch moulding which came out well.
then progressed to using templates(taken from the plywood
door cut outs) for the radiused corners on the table router with a bearing guided trim router bit.
so far so good,nice and warm in the workshop with the wood burner going.
I have now moved onto the doors and frame that cover the steering
compartment which if far more complex,needing 6 different radii for each set of corner mouldings
fortunately all the cabin
doors have the same radius corners so one set of templates should suffice
