    Re: Curved Sides Glue-Up *** How-To

    I've never done a curved cabinet but if I wanted to trim the excess off I'd clamp a piece of wood to the front or back and use a router with a bushing or a top bearing bit to trim the edge from the flat face side. You could get very close to the front or back and sand what's left smooth.

      Am I the only one who cuts circles in the front baffle before making the final box?

      Thanks for the video and good choice on intro music.

        When you lay down the sides, do you worry about excess? Since
        I am horrible at cutting the right lengths perfectly, and if there's a significant curve I can imagine not getting the length just right and in that case
        I would probably shoot to have extra and just flush trim it out. Is that a viable option?

        PassingInterest did a great documentation of his curved build that you might find useful. His trimming method and jig are shown on page 3.
