Making a Camber

A camber is not a true arc, but it is much simpler to make and often prettier. Simply clamp blocks in the right places to define the "control points" for the curve, and trace with a pencil. Use a 3/8 x 3/4 hardwood stick for the curve.

If you use two blocks in the middle, make sure they're symmetrical (same distance from the end, same distance from the edge).
