Topic tags/keywords: question refurbishing

My wife and I have an antique bedroom set, with the bed and dresser. However we want some bed stands to match the dresser. I have a good idea how it’s put together, and shouldn’t have a problem, except for an unusual piece in the front. Could this have been done with a router, or pre manufactured trim. If so, is there a place on line that sells this kind of trim pieces?

You can buy MDF 1/4 rounds that wide. Its generally used for
veneer and laminate work. Machining the detail into the
MDF could be more trouble than it’s worth… I would
probably make a bunch of molding and nail it onto
the curved MDF piece.

Not the only way to solve the problem, but the easiest
one that comes to mind for me.

Have your say...
