Curved wooden mouldings - how to?

Iím in a similar situation having had a boat fire in a French made Beneteau where everything is metric. All the curved molding is veneer thin laminate glued to whatever radius and then shaped on the edges. At this time, I am sanding and refinishing due to the tremendous amount of time required to duplicate this molding. One length is somewhat charred and Iíve become pretty good with veneer for this with acceptable results. Iíve attached a before photo for perspective of what Iím dealing with.

Re: Curved wooden mouldings - how to?

It was great to read this thread as I have yet to tackle the capping on the transom as I had it in the "too hard basket".

I don't want to use steam so I'll probably follow #2 (danstanford) advice

"For tight rad's you can also laminate thicker material to cover the whole shape and then cut the shape you want from the rectangular block."

But since we have a cabinet maker in town I have considered getting him to cut the timber for the capping which is about 10mm thick (top to bottom) If the finished capping has to be 50mm wide how many strips could I get away with? (I suppose the type of wood would come into it) Would it be 3, 4 or 5?

Any thoughts?

Matt thanks,
It is rewarding and yes I do appreciate the original builders craftsmanship, it lasted 40 years. I learned a lot making this part and I made a few tolerable mistakes but I think I could do it better if I made another one (but won't). Now to make the caprail match the new teak .

The piece near your galley sink looks like a set of laminated strips, that were glued, sanded and then routed out to make the groove.
