Pictures below are from the making of the fenders of the Fordson Dexta.

The last time I made the fenders on the lathe, but this time I would make them without a lathe and did it on the router table.

Fantastic write up and ingenuity in making the small parts look the real deal. Love how you used the router bits to make the curves.
