Re: [MedievalSawdust] Cooper top
- I made a box with a round top and the way I made the to was I use I cut to ends out of 1 by stock for the curve I wanted then I uses waynes coating for the top interlocking them . but I had to cut off one of the edges on the grove with a razor knife so it would bend and that part went in the inside of trunk . depending how long he is making it I did a big trunk about 2 1/2 feet long but I cut a third piece using the end for the pattern but cutting away the inside so it as only like a 1 1/4 inches wide for nailing area doesn't need to go all the way down like the sides .In a message dated 2/27/2006 11:52:43 P.M.

Hi, this is my first post and hopefully someone will be able to help me out. One
of my class mates in Wood shop is making a chest with a rounded top and so
far no one has found useful directions on how exactly to do that. Him and the
teacher have been calling it a "coopered top". Does any one here have any
experience with this type of thing or know where we could get more
information on how to do it?
