This is my first ever project with masterclasses online, raising the panel is a bit of an issue for me. When I installed the rails it actually cracked it and therefore bulged out. I didn’t rebate the back I followed Paul’s method but I didn’t get the sweet angle so the raise itself is what cause the crack. I went ahead and planed it some more but I over planed it so now the panel itself is loose and wobbly within the grooves, I believe glue will fill that gap up but it’s not ideal. Nxt time I’m going to make a rebate but for this clock having raised panel on both sides is ideal.
Can anyone tell me exactly how I can get the correct angle without this happening again.
Anyway I plan on making another one after this is one is complete out Fijian Mahogany.
I would like to point out that scribe you made works excellent, I do own a 1/8″ bead moulding plane. Haaving compared the results between the two your methods beats it hands down. It is definitely quicker with the moulding plane but less attractive. Btw I used a phillips heads screw and it works well, it actually compresses the fibres and very slightly rounds one half. Not sure why you don’t recommend using the phillips head.
I would like to finish off by saying having worked with wood for a number of years doesn’t make me an expert by any means and by joining masterclasses my skills already have improved greatly whilst learning something new. This is the best investment I have ever made. So thank you Paul!
