Nothing real exciting at this point. Just wanted to have a complete blog on this project. I used the Turnlock System and Circle Jig by Milescraft to cut the arch in the panel. I noticed a nice review was posted by Teenagewoodworker on this jig and plan to my experience and thoughts when I get a chance.
The bent laminations fit nicely and the whole thing easily went together, which is a pleasant change from my normal routine.
I installed one side of the stays and left the others so I could finish the frame separate from the panel. Here’s is the final fitting before applying finish. BTW, the photo is a faithful representation of the panel’s colors.
