Finally I have some time to get back to the four poster beds I was working on. These trimmings will become the top rails on the head and foot boards. But I wanted the ends to be molded too. So here's how I did it;
I've cut some wood to fit (real tight) and try to match the grain as well.
Then cutting away the excess, and creating the hollow shape first.
Giving it a little step, before cutting the round part that follows.
And then the molding goes all the way round as I designed it.
