I’m in the process of building my brother some castle type shutters for his house and a couple of doors meant to look like the tops of toe-pincher coffins. I’m come up with an idea in my head to make them look a little more old world and beat up but can’t really find a good method to do what I want.
I’m trying to make the raised panel part and the shutters have a undulated and rustic look to them like the wood was hewn and split into boards. Short of spending $800 for the Festool planer with the undulating head I can find no good tutorial on the process using a cambered plane or some type of way with the router. The only possible idea I could conceivably come up with is using a bowl carving bit and running it all over the top of the panel in different directions at different depths.
Any help would be appreciated or links to anything helpful. I added a pic short of what I’m shooting for it’s the best I could find for what I searched for. The Festool video of the undulating head is more the look I’m shooting for.
go to 3:12ish to skip to the look I’m shooting for.
