BTW, a 1-1/2”x 1’1/2” stick will not work, at least for a BT7, because of the compound curve shape. Steaming it might make it work but I don’t know about that.

Subject: [Healeys] Wood top bow


Has anyone made their own wood top bow?  As I'm getting ready to order a new wood top bow for my BN7, and seeing the price, I wondered if I could make my own. I have my own little wood shop, band saw, table saw, router, etc. 

I have not yet disassembled the old top.  I was leaving that up to the upholstery shop so they could see how it all goes together. But then I thought, how hard could it be to make one myself?   A 4 foot 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" stick of white oak will cost me about $20.00.
