Hi all here again. You may remember on my 1940's truck I rounded the fenders to look more realistic. I would like to share with you the method I came up with to do this. The attached photos should explain it. 20190322_203101_HDR.jpg  20190422_203455.jpg  20190422_203507.jpg  20190422_204147.jpg  20190422_204732.jpg  20190422_205134.jpg  20190422_205350.jpg

Thank you for this excellent how-to. The step by step photos tell your story very well. The method adds a great deal of realism.

Thanks John I'm always trying to think of ways to make things easier.  I also made a jig to cut circles on my band saw. I saw this on U tube. It makes large wheels such as the farm tractor much easier. I will share photos later.

I like the rounded fenders a lot. Adds realism and interest contrast to cars/trucks that have all straight cuts. I am still gathering shop tools, i very much need a router with table, so i am just starting with the straight cut method on more 2D scroll cut projects. I am attending/showing my first small craft show end of next month, should be a real eye opener in my learning process.

thank you Lexie. I have been working with wood for many years. Wood work is my hobby and I love it. But when found Johns website about three years ago it really inspired me to make the toys. My time is limited I hope to start going to craft fairs one day but I want a good supply of toys first. Good luck to you.

This is a great idea.  Last month or so I took a chunk of skin out of my index finger rounding fenders on my router.  This will prevent that problem.  I use my router a lot for small parts.  thanks  PaPa Jack

I almost did the same thing PAPA Jack plus I destroyed a few fenders when I got to the end it would take a big bite out of them that's why I put some thought into it and came up with this Idea.
