Take in the hands of a sharp knife or cobbler's just a piece of the saw blade and cut through the cardboard, as well as 2-3 millimeters of the plaster. Take this sheet and it breaks the side opposite the slot. These details need to make two. Then you need to draw the bending line on the front side.
Both blanks are applied to each otherthe back side. To the sheets were kept, they need to seal with adhesive tape in several places. With jigsaw need to saw through the two workpiece. The surface of the cutting then to be treated to a smooth and level condition. Billets disconnected.
With a tape measure out the length of the curve. It is necessary to cut two pieces of the desired length of the guide profile. The side shelves need to make slots in increments of 5 cm depth to the base of the profile. As a result, we get a segment, which is in flexion may be polygonal shapes.
