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 A piece of wood made of three or more layers of wood veneer laminated together with glue. side covers.
By clicking on the crown image you will get a full-size image that can be saved to your computer.
Angela marked where the trim pieces were to go on a side-cover.

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

Once marked, the head side-covers were fixed securely on a work platform and using a router, the K2 crown pattern was cut out.
This was fairly slow work because of all the nooks and crannies in the pattern.
