The crown
So far we had cut the head side-covers to shape and bent the trim, but we had yet to fix the trim onto the side-covers.

crown pattern for the k2 telephone kiosk First, the crown had to be etched into the side-covers.

I made a pretty good copy of the K2 crown and made a full-size pattern in a printable file so I could print out a copy anytime I liked and (using carbon paper) trace the pattern onto the plywood side covers.

By clicking on the crown image you will get a full-size image that can be saved to your computer.

tracing the crown pattern for the k2 telephone box Angela marked where the trim pieces were to go on a side-cover.
This was to ensure that the crown would fit between the trim rather than overlapping it.

She then printed out a full-size drawing of the crown, and (using carbon paper) traced the pattern onto the plywood side-cover.

Ditto with the other three side-covers.

This was fairly slow work because of all the nooks and crannies in the pattern.
