Making an Ovolo Moulding by Hand

Had to make a moulding for a cabinet I’m working on and I thought to myself.

“Self, people might enjoy watching this process”

This will be carved in the next step for a cabinet I just installed at a local Episcopal church.  I wanted a larger ovolo profile than I usually go for so I had to finally restore a pair of vintage #14 hollow and rounds.  Actually there wasn’t much to the restoration other than regrinding the profile and honing it.  The plane body was in good shape already.

So, I present the simple step by step on how to make an Ovolo using rabbet and hollow planes.  Enjoy!
