Cove Seperation

Picking up the thread from last time we were together I think it was here, at about this stage we ended it

and I had clearly indicated more refinement was in the future of this piece of moulding, but that’s it with mouldings isn’t it, when to stop with all the coves and ovolos & beads, fillets & quirks. There is a cornucopia of shapes to choose from and to be honest one can get carried away, still, they can be beautiful.

If I look at it now, well hold on, too soon to make the final judgement. Here I have planed down but left an imprecise vertical edge. Lets call it a margin Ha, ha, ha.

But I fix that right up by flipping the plank and clamping it in the fore-vice.

Then as a final gesture, cutting it from the plank of origin and  the assessment can be made of the elements or features – avoiding at all costs a regression into vulgar jargon – that with the extra step of taking a nick out of the cove it has become visually  and physically less massive and more responsive to light.
