How would you achieve coach head shape with hand tools In a fielded panel.
I have been pondering about this for a little while in a rail it is not to hard to do but a fielded panel? Easyish with electric router in table and right cutter.Do not want to use that rout.
Any thought how any of you would achieve this.
Sorry buddy, I can be of no help with this one. I do hate to see posts Ignored though, even if you cant help. More and more I see people post only to ask for them selves, and when they get an answer they cant even take the time to say thanks. My reply list is growing Shorter, HaHa.
Therefore, according to the text, the second image Ken attached would technically be “raised, sunk and fielded”. I have a used raised panel plane I bought a while back that does this, but I have not had an opportunity to use it.
Sorry ken it not that type of head. Scott like the fielding plane.
I may have used wrong terminology. but it is what I have always known it as.
Basically fielded panel with a segmented top Arch if you like.
Think the terminology comes from where a lot of horse drawn coaches had an arched door so called top rail called coach head. Could be wrong but this has been what I have always called them.
I can see way how to do two sides and bottom but having a problem how to do the fielded arch bit.
Hope I have cleared up confusion.
Thats more like what I am after doing Ken you got it.
With an electric router make a template and follow with bearing guided cutter easy.
But trying to devise a way with hand tools getting me a little stumped.
Especially that that par of panel be mainly end grain.
