Posted by Dave Houser on Jul 16, 2007
I have a bunch of radius deck beam forms hanging on my garage wall as well. I have actually reused one. I make mine with 3/4 inch MDF (medium density fiberboard) and cover the mating edge with packing tape for a just-in-case bond breaker. The outboard clamp holes should be at or outboard the ends of the deck beam. The width of the beam overhands the 3/4 inch thickness of the form but it works ok when gluing with thickened epoxy. 4mm plywood laminations are easy to bend and spring back very little.
