« Part 5: Almost final assembly Part 6 of Bridal chest series no next part

A decorative molding to add to the cover. I’ve never seen one done like this so we’ll see if it works out.
Here is one of the paper templates.

Clamping it proved somewhat of a challenge

And the one for the side

And a small cove molding for the skirt. This molding will hide a few sins of the fit.



Up next… a ton of sanding and the finish of sprayed poly. I need to get this finished by Saturday…three days. Crunch time!

For future reference.
A good way is to keep your off-cuts (from profile) and use them to hold clamps against work-piece.
Also helps to prevent damage/bruising to profile.
Cheers, Jinky (James).
