Arched Raised Panel Door Template

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a friend stop by today wanting some arched raised panel doors made.  Looks like I’m in the market for a template but can’t decide which one to buy so I’ll ask my good friends here.  Any of y’all bought a template that you love?  What kind is it?

I've only made one set of arched doors. Instead of the raised panel, they had stained glass inserts. I just drew up a template for the arch and then used a stick/cope bit set to create the frame.

A set of french curves can be had at Hobby Lobby for about 10 bucks and you can draw up all kinds

of arched raised panels. The ready made ones I've seen were made of plastic so that could be bought at HL also.. Besides building a set just a hair different would have your name on them!! You do have some graph paper don't you?

It shouldn't be hard to make your own, Like the curve of the bottom of a 5 gal bucket.

No experience with any Ron, but I recall reading somewhere decent reviews on these.

CMT-TMP-003 Template Set

 

PeachTree Woodworking just had a set on sale a couple or so weeks ago...don't recall if it was these or another brand.

I made my own, but I only needed 2 sizes....might be different if I was making several different widths. Using wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood.">MDF, I cut the curve I wanted and smoothed it out.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
