Shaping the ends of the top rails

Referring to the anatomy illustration (page 131), draw the decorative curve at the ends of the top rails on a piece of /-inch plywood and cut out the profile on your band saw. Using the plywood piece as a template, transfer the curve onto each rail. Clamp the rail to a work surface with the end to be cut extending off the table, and cut the curve with a saber saw (left). Once all the rails have been shaped, sand the cut ends smooth and assemble the pieces with glue and screws as you did the lattice (page 134).
