Re: More details on the method under consideration

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I would argue that it would be easier planing across the grain to get the initial profile. After all, flattening begins across the grain as it is easier to push. Trivial task to refine with sandpaper rolled around a dowel, or can, or what ever is about the right diameter.

I made a sanding block for this kind of task. It is a block of wood with saw kerfs almost through it every 1/8". I attach Klingspor flexible abrasive to it and go to work. With an initial 80 grit I can rapidly shape concave profiles.
