The lath table commission progresses, and today I cut the Italianate arc on one end. The method for this is simple: a router attached to a board, pinned on one end so that the other end swings in an even curve. To make the cut easier on the router bit, I first cut away the excess lath with a jig saw. The distance between the pin and the router proscribe the severity of the arc. This arc was cut to match the existing shapes of the arched doors and windows in the house. The cut-off area looks like a city skyline, so i’m going to make a base for it and give it to the guy who commissioned the table.
