I finally found some time to make a little progress on my star door. I did a bit more chip carving on the star itself and had the frame pieces cut. Tonight I made the panels around the star. I decide to plane up some redwood for contrast, and made them 1/2” thick. This makes them sit down in the frame and gives the star more depth. Instead of routing a full raised panel on them I opted for a rabbet and a cove. I used a core box bit to make the cove. So the star has a large cove and the other panels have a small cove. So far I’m liking it.
Here are the pics. Nothing is glued together yet. I need to finish up some carving and then sand everything.
As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
