Next, I started to lay out the control panel and other cab pieces on the second sheet of plywood. I had not received my control panel art from GameOnGrafix yet, so I used my paper printout to do the layout. For laying out the straight lines of the control panel top, I actually used a tape measure and a straight edge. But the curve is tricky; just tape down the overlay and trace the curve onto the wood. Note the layout lines on the back of the sheet for where the control panel box will be. It is a good idea to lay this out on an actual-size printout to test your measurements. The inside dimensions of my control panel box are 29 1/2" x 11", using the same 3/4" maple veneer plywood.
