I’m just about to start a new project which has some curved shaker style doors involved, does any one know of a book or some techniques that i can obtain.
I’m thinking about having some cutters made for the door stiles and going down that route but i would like to study it somewhere first.
Is there anyone out there who has some experience of this type of work who can help me, this would be grately appreciated.
Many thanks
mickey cologne.

there are many options and after perusing your web site I might suggest cheating

use multiple layers of “curve ply” applied to a mold/vacumn bag then apply veneer and 1/4” strips to mimic shaker

glue up thin layers of AD wood. re-cut to size, panel can be a mitered glue up, hand planed to fit

“curve ply” panel only

for cutting mortise and tenons….............I make a jig to fit curves, then shape/route/machine accordingly.

I did a blog on curved doors here on LJ’s, you can check it out if like. It might be of some help to you. If you have any questions just send me message on here.
