Different techniques applied in making the woodtoy models #3: A curved exhaust

In this series I want to show what different techniques I use to make my models. I appreciate comments, especially if you come up with another proposal to achieve something.

At first it looks like such an exhaust is difficult to make, but the time you need is not that bad. The pictures show how I handled it.  The exhaust was used in my SUV 4x4.

Thanks.  I thought you made pens these days. This way you can make curved pens.  😉

Good stuff Dutchy.   Splitting the piece into 2 parts and doing a glue up is brilliant.  Too often we woodworkers don’t stop long enough to realize the safe way to achieve an end.  This should be a good lesson to all of us, experienced or newbie, that there are many ways to get to the destination.  But not all roads are the right one.  Thanks for a great article.
You make it look so easy! 
A+ for the effort you put into details that many give up on!

This is a great tip....

However, if you split it into two parts to make it easy... if you split it into 4 it should be a breeze... and if 8, you should be able to do it with your eyes close... 
How many pieces do you need to split it into to have it assemble itself?

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Thanks for sharing this! I'm sure I've seen you do this before, but I guess I needed a reminder.
Thanks PapaDave.
SplinterGroup if it is to easy for you do the way LBD suggest. In the past he said I made it look easy, but given his reaction he did not understand.
Steve your memory won't let you down, this is the first time I posted it.
