If so, how did you make the crest rail?

Neither his plans nor the DVD explain how to make the crest rail. It top of the crest rail is cut from a pattern at the top of the part, and is curved shallower at the ends and deeper in the middle (Concave shape) over its length.

So I don’t know which cuts to make, and in which order.

Thanks much in advance!

Thanks for your reply!

I actually got an answer to this question on another thread. A member had made these loungers out of cedar, and they looked just like Norm’s. So I asked him how he cut the crestrail and he filled me in!
