Rear Mudguards/Fenders…

They are made using two holesaws to create a donut of timber.
After cutting the donut I clean up the inside on the bobbin sander.
These are appropriately 4” I.D. x 4.5” O.D.
Then I added a thin inner backing cut with a holesaw to fit neatly in the donut.
This added piece allows me to sander the O.D. smooth before adding a 1/8” roundover radius to the outer edge.
Using the now completed donut I cut a semicircle in the van sides to allow the mudguards/fenders to be fitted together once cut in half.
