The lens curve in the photo creates the illusion to some degree that it is hand profiled but I believe it is a standard 1/4″ shank router bit that was not used in full to create the ogee. None of what I said is any criticism so please justmoon do not take it as such.
The Lost Scrolls of HANDWORK
(Hand tool only woodworking magazine)
Dead on Salko. I don’t take it as criticism, no sweat. I just prefer the ogee profile to the round over, and I’m very new to joinery, so I only have 1 moulding plane and it is a cove. Believe me ditching the router is high on my list. I hate that thing…too much noise, dust. I can proudly say that profiling the top and bottom was the only power tool I used on this clock. I really enjoyed learning about raising the panel with the plane. All the stock was dimensioned with a scrub and a 4 1/2, and of course all the joinery is hand cut. I have a veritas plough plane that I used for the grooves, and I used it for the beads as well. Thanks!
Oh it is full blown at this point. I just got 2 Disstons (a #7 and a D8, x-cut and rip, respectively.)
