« Part 1: Starting to Build Part 2 of Jensen's Train Bed series no next part

I am working on the front cap of the train bed. I made a template for the arch and circle. This is something that I should have done about 3 trains ago. I keep having to reinvent the shapes.

After I had the templates made, I then used the template to create two identical pieces. To make the front cap thicker we spaced them out with some poplar for framing.

The next step will be to wrap it with some bending plywood.
