I love this door. I built this for a home that I also did the front doors on. I love radius work, this door was fun to build. It was for their wine cellar, but if it were mine house, I’d have my shop in there, it was that big.

Honestly it’d be hard for me to explain my particular radius jig because it’s been through so many refinements over the years. It works somewhat like a large compass that swings through my band saw in a pendulum fashion. I’ve added an indexing system and a few more features to it and it works great. These days you could probably buy one, mine was shown to me 20 years ago, it was home made but works great. I don’t know where you are with your woodworking skills so I could go many different ways with an answer to your question. My only advice would be take the time to, joint, glue up and lay out your radius carefully, after that you can pretty much cut it out with a band saw, jigsaw, router or however you prefer. My jig allows me to cut radius inside and out with barely any edge sanding required. This door’s radius was several pieces, which can be easier to do for some. These days I swing the entire radius in one or two pieces using my band saw and jig. I prefer to swing the whole radius out of one large glue-up if I can. I could send you a picture of my jig if it’d help. Lol, I guess in the end I typed a whole lot but can’t really answer you’re question.

Have your say...
