    I make a former and use that to guide the router.

    the edging can be very awquard on such a shallow angle, where it meets the bullnose.

    How do you guys get around fitting laminate worktops to curved base units?

    I have done the curved radius on a breakfast bar as above using the arc on my trend jig and filed edging which is very tricky. But the curve on the base units appears even tighter.

    i dont fit postformed woktops over curved base end units, if i supply them then i go for a straight edge laminate or timber or granite!
