concrete walkway...


Whats the easiest way to make curving in concrete? im using 1/2" ply that i cut kerfs in... keeps breaking... il post a pic of what im looking to do.. i was thinking of doulbed up luan... any thoughts?

you have to imagine that the tree is gone, and that the concrete is torn up... which it is, i just dont have an updated pic...

you can see the red line where i want the walkway to go...

The best material for tight radiuses is 1/8" or 1/4" "Masonite", or hardboard. It comes in 4x8 sheets commonly, & can be ripped to 4", or whatever height you please. I cant see the pictures, but 1/4" should get you down to about a 2' radius, 1/8" even less, obviously. You could also attempt to soak the ply you already have in water. I can remember years ago, floating 1x4's in a few custumer's pools!
