Today we will take a quick look at the final profile we made. This profile is subtly different than the profile we made yesterday. (Who knows, the original intention may have been for the same profile.)
Snipes bill followed by rabbet.
#4 round followed by #8 round
Take note the the entire profile is lower than the original surface. This was not the case yesterday.
Additionally, the bead is closer to that back fillet here than yesterday's astragal. (note: Yesterday's bead was technically an astragal because it was raised from the surrounding flat surfaces. We have a sharp quirk on the back side here, not a flat.)
Finally, today's cove is much more elliptical than yesterday's, which was more of a circle segment. How do I know this? When it comes to copying a piece, just hold your planes up to the moulding you're copying (with the iron out). You'll easily be able to see if a cove is cut with an 8, 4 or both, depending upon how the plane matches the profile.
Bill and I did not address the hood's crown along the top because he had not yet decided how he will cut the arch, which was originally carved.
