I make a counter for my bar stools to face my fish tank.
I started by measuring how much I wanted to cut out.
I got out a scrap piece of wood the proper length.
Then put a nail through the end.
I only need a little bit of nail sticking through.
I now need a hole the size of a pencil to stick through.
I needed the hole right here…
The pencil also does not need to sick out far.
Here is the center point marking for the curve axis.
That’s where the nail goes. I do not press hard, just enough to keep it in place.
This is done on the back of the board, so it is not shown
Now that’s a good curve.
I then cut it with my scroll saw, routed the edge, and applied stain.
A great bar top facing a fish tank. Nice and relaxing.
