    Inside wall done. The ply is cheap Home Depot sanded-one-side 5mm ply. I saw no need to use more expensive ply for the inside. Besides, I like all the different grain patterns in this cheap stuff....

    Good stuff!! I've got a "tiny" 30" mill. The most important thing is the chain and how sharp it is.

    Can you tell us what chain you're using and how you're grinding it?

    Thanks,

    Many use 3/8" blades for curves, but I never use more than 1/4", even more so on a 6" piece of material.
