Window sill with curve

Postby johnrl » Sat Jun 28, 2008 7:16 am

I Live in a 1930s semi. The window in the lounge has a half bay window and the wall has a plastered curve. Currently the window has an ugly PVC window sill which in mitred. I'd like to replace it with a wooden window sill that matches the curve of the wall.

Can someone please advise on how to work out the dimensions of the curve so that I can cut the wood to follow, as closely as possible, the line of the wall but with a 2-3cm protrusion.

Many thanks

your best bet is to make a template out of hard board or cardboard. mdf would be my choice of material for the cill. might be tricky to do it in wood, depending on the radius and length of the curve.
