    Ah…morbidly called a “tombstone” door I believe.

    Here is a link to a useful forum thread. The second post (Bob R.) has done this himself and also provides a link to an Underhill episode.

    Underhill’s use of the router plane (sideways) is pretty cool in Part 1 (about 18 minutes in). I have not seen that before.

    It depends where you live, we call them Cathedral doors in the UK. Nice links, way beyond my skill level for now.

    Really – he gets rushed at the end of the episode and doesow how the round part of the panel is carved!

    That show needs better pacing, or needs to be slowed down a LOT.

    Paul’s videos are much more my speed…

    “Cathedral” is probably the popular term here these days as well.

    I am glad I do not particularly care for the style – because it seems beyond my current abilities as well. 😉

    The process is interesting though…

    The names are normally types of ranges done by company’s as well as Cathedral you get Somerset, Roman and others. on Roys tomb stone he use what looks like a semi-circular arch, most arches on panels are a segmental arch and you would possibly need tramel heads on a batten to mark arch. As dividers/ compass may not have the span to achieve segmental arc.
    I am sure the coach head thing come from of my carpentry books and stuck in my head ever since done my City and Guilds.

    If you want a more shallow arc…develop a pattern…remember you will need 2..one for outer arc, 1 for inner. If you want the shallow rebate effect…use your knife to trace around the inner arc and chisel back into it. Sharp chisel makes it quick work. It took me less than 30min for the example that I posted…surprised me how easy it really was.
