How would you do this? Oval table with plywood center and 2" trim.

We're trying to come up with ideas on how to go about this.

The design is a basic oval table, about 6' long and 4' wide, in an oval configuration. The center is cherry plywood, and the edge will be banded using 8/4 strips. The thought is to rabbet the edge of the band so the plywood lays into the banding.

We have a sheet of cherry plywood, and four 8' sticks of 8/4 x10" cherry

How would you go about building this? I can't think of any good way to make templates for this...

Something similar to this - well, the top anyway:

Find the center of your radius, use a string to mark a line, cut it out with a sabre saw, cutting outside the line. Smooth to the line with a belt sander.

Thanks for the input.

I'm a little more concerned about the trim pieces. I'm not sure how to go about templating that.
