I WISH I would have thought of doing the skill saw (circular saw) thing earlier in the build. But its no to late, I still have exterior trim to do.
Got any ideas on making a planner out of the belt sander? I can not find 1/4" thick boards for the top trim...still...

All I did was bandsaw the proper radius on one side of a flat board that is 1/4" longer and the same width as the metal skid plate. The thin ends are a mear 1/8" thick, and I fastened a small cleat on the front end that butts up against the skid plate. The belt, while turning wants to slide it backwards, but the wooden cleat prevents it.
Now you've thrown down the gauntlet, I'll take a pic and see if my daughter can post it for me. Then I'll write down all the steps she goes through, about finding my teardrop pics and getting them the right size and finally posted........whew, harder than working with wood.
Roly, not quite 'puter lit-rit, but trying
