Making A Rim Mould
The mould is a wooden form around which you can bend a plank into
shape. It's basically a circle eighteen inches wide by four or five inches
high. Because it's hard to get a four or five inch thick piece of wood with
that diameter, it's easier to just cut two eighteen inch circles out of
half-inch or quarter-inch plywood and then sandwich a cross of two-by-fours
in between to give it the thickness.
Cut a few holes in the top circle (and the bottom if you wish). These
holes will provide C-clamps with a place to anchor when you need to
hold a freshly bent plank around the mould.
