Topic tags/keywords: question bonnet top highboy serpentine

I’m looking for a video, pictorial, or step-by-step procedure for duplicating the serpentine cove molding on bonnet-top chests or highboys. Mostly interested in pre-machine age methods, not Popular Mechanics router and jigs type of woodworking. Thanks for your help!!

Several years ago my business partner, Don, posted a description of the process on Fine Woodworking’s forum. While he has never carved a goose neck molding, he spent years carving different elements for curved and other geometric stair cases. He’s about as accomplished at this kind of work as anyone you’re likely to find. A link to his post, it’s the second response:
