    Nice looking wreith. I am guessing you did the profile by hand. I have tried setting up a shaper to profile uniform decending curved handrailings but have had no success. Lots of fear though. So far my best bet is to creat the thinnest possible laminate with the profile on it then apply it.

      Hi Alick,
      Thanks for the comment
      I do the mouldings with a portable spindle moulder or shaper. You can also carve them out and then use a scrapper.
      Most of my moulded rails have too much relief to be set into a laminate thin enough to bend around a wreath. The other problem being that the wreath bends in 2 directions at once. this is particularly true for this wreath that has to follow an iron rail that has been bent all over the place.
      I’ll post a photo if your interested.
      all the best
