HI Tom
I took the liberty of borrowing the first photo you sent me and cycled and
pointed the the area of interest it looks like you started the angle before the
edge of the support gallery in fact the plank look like it comes to a point LOL

hey Tom

I think I almost have the angle cut that is, but I am still having issues with the plank trying to split at the turns and the twist should I go and buy a steamer
for the twist portion but how to resolve the splinting at the turns, if I can only figure a way to gradual bend the plank or planks in the L shape form like
you did for yours what are your thoughts thank you

As I mentioned upscreen, the easiest way to steam wood is with a common household clothes iron.

Hi Ronald as I said before I use the steam from a kettle to make the twist .I just use an ordinary electric kettle i find if boil the kettle to make the missus a cup of tea, theres usually enough steam comes out to make the twist and everyone's happy BigGrin . You could also try Marks method,I think you have to experiment and find a method that suits you.
