Panels Rising -
 
With all of the mortises cut and a bit of tab A into slot B  …
 
               
 
… the frame of the Prie Dieu back began to take shape.
 

 
Once fitted together I drilled holes for the draw-bore pins.
 

 
While the frame was clamped up, I determined the overall size of the panels to be 7-7/8” x 13-3/4” …
 

 
... I decided on a profile akin to this.
 
        
 
I then cut two panels from 3/4” Ambrosia maple stock. With the walnut receiving the General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/Stain concoction and the Ambrosia maple receiving just boiled linseed oil … I think the contrast will be striking.
 
               
 
Laying out the elements of the raised panel in two dimensions was a breeze … that third dimension  might be somewhat of a challenge …
 

 
… given that I do not have a raising plane, and will be attempting this profile with just a kerfing plane, rebate plane, round plane, and a couple of chisels. Wish me luck!

Looks like you’ve got a plan. That’s a step in the right direction. Looking forward to see how they come out.

And I agree that the contrast should be striking.

Ron,
I think you’ve got it right, the layout is most critical, followed by slow removal of all the waste wood. I did this for my first time on a past project with tombstone doors and blogged the method here on LJs, which matches your approach, and it worked out great.
Good luck as requested, however I don’t think you’ll need it, I’m sure you’ve got this wipped.

Right … just remove the wood that is NOT part of the raised panel. Thanks for the encouragement / confidence, Tom!

FYI – I can read your blog, but I am unable to see your photos. Perhaps PhotoBucket doesn’t like me (??)

For those looking at this in the future, PopWood had an article on making a panel raising plane that might prove helpful.

Great article, Dave. But ya know … now that I made it through the panels with just a kerfing saw, plane, and chisel, I might just stick with that method. After all, the profile possibilities are endless, versus being locking into whatever profile one makes for a panel raiser. Something to think about!

Figured that might be the case for you, Ron. But I also figured that was a good enough article that I’ll probably want to look it up again, and someone else might want to build a panel raising plane, too. So I left a bread crumb or two so I can find it again. Hope you don’t mind. ;-)

Don’t mind at all … bread crumbs are good! Thanks!
