The aesthetic at this point...

David Weaver
this isn't glued, just clamped together for look. I moved the groove forward of center, which may be suspicious, but it works better with the smaller bead. Otherwise, George's tip to me of not mixing straight lines and curves in a single element is broken at the transition of the bead into the frame (e.g., a round bead and a straight tall area down to the panel looks worse).


I could get faster at these (I think it'll take me 2 hours to profile the sticking, plow grooves, mark everything up and get a fit of this quality - 2 hours per door, and could maybe get it down to 1 by the fourth door), but the penalty for hurrying is shortening the height of the door to close these little miters and the result would be problematic.
