How do I take a contour off my balcony railing and transfer it to a piece of wood? Answered
I have a planter designed to fit over a piece of 2x4 railing, and a railing on my balcony that is smaller than 2x4, and curved, with
a non-rectangular side profile.
Please see the photos. I have annotated the first three photos.
It's hard to see from the photo of the railing, so I drew a side profile of the railing shape and
photographed my drawing.
The planter has a groove in the bottom so that it'll rest securely on the 2x4.
I want to make an adapter out of wood so that the planter will rest securely over my railing.
I plan to cut some wood to fit perpendicular to and against the railing,
countoured to fit over the railing, and seat a piece of wood over the top
of the railing, running parallel to it, to seat the planter into.
