« Part 2: "Before Pics" Part 3 of Furniture Restoration series Part 4: Bent Lamination of New Front Apron »

I built up some 2×12 material to make the blocks for the forms.

I removed the webbing and springs. All four corner blocks came off easily

One end of the front apron came out easily. The other took a little “coaxing” and the apron broke again in the process. There’s no way it not would have broken again if I had tried to patch it and put it back together.

Here’s the front apron held together with spring clamps. It’s ready to transfer the outline to the form block. Then to the bandsaw.

The side rails and back rails aren’t in any better shape.
