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!
