Yea I just got done building my hood. Have fun building that curve but it can be done. In the wood working shop I used to work at the tools made custom builds easy. I forgot how long it took to hand sand everything.

You can also take a larger piece of wood. Say you want you're frame to be 1x2's. which is what I made mine out off. So take a 2x4 and just cut the curve from that. That's how I would do it. Hard for me to explain what I see in my mind.
