Bulkhead Bows

The Firewall and Instrument Panel both have curved bows at the top of them.
The plans say to laminate 2-3 pieces of 6mm thick wood, and perhaps that works okay
for Spruce, but I find that for Fir, 3mm thick pieces work much better.

I actually had to make each piece twice, once because the laminations were too thick to handle the curve easily, and once because I measured the height of the bow incorrectly.

Total Time: 6.0 hrs.
