Edge Moulding –
 
With the last of the dovetails cut, I loose fit the desk together and devote some time to edge moulding. It appears that the original desk on frame has a separate edge moulding running the perimeter of the top and lid. Therefore, I decided not to have breadboard edges on the top/lid like on the kneeling platform.
 

 
I will be using alder for this moulding and hope to fashion something akin to this.
 
                        
 
The moulding is a two-part construction, joined to the top/lid via a tongue and groove joint. I grabbed a 3/4 inch thick alder board and formed a tongue …
 

 
... once formed, I ripped a 1 inch wide stick …
 

 
... and created the beginning of the profile with a No. 10 hollow.
 

 
I find it interesting how one hollow plane can make both of these edge treatments. It looks like once the glue dries I’ll have to do some sanding and re-oiling of those transition pieces to even up the color.
 

 
The moulding appears to fit well into the groove. It would appear as though the 19th century tongue and groove set can still do the job. Don’t you just love old tools?
 

 
I then cut some 7/16 by 5/16 inch alder strips and glued them to the bottoms of the moulding sticks …
 

 
... forming a 5/16 by 5/16 inch rebate into which I cut a cove with a No. 8 Round.
 

 
I am pleased with how the moulding turned out. I like how the top/lid is just proud of the moulding and adds to the overall profile.
 

 
Just five more pieces to go!
 

Thanks for looking … all comments and/or questions welcomed … more to come!

Hey Ron—nice work! I’ve a question, and apologize if I’m just helping to catch a misspelling but… “grove” plane? I’ve always seen reference to tongue and groove work but tongue and grove is a first. Is this an old-timey spelling or something?

Dan, back in the 18th century, the letter “O” was scarce, thus used sparingly … Touché … revision made! LOL … thanks!
