Doors Part V

The lower potion of the back door is shaped around the back fender . Since the groove is neither parallel to the back, nor in a straight line, I put on this temporary fence on with some CA glue and then shaped the fence to allow for a slight inward arc.

Then using a router with a 3/8" bit I take two or three passes to get to the proper depth.

After getting the front side cut square, trace the smaller side and cut outward at approx. 10 Deg. I had enough detail from the original piece to lay out the adjoining faces. After all the rest of the sides are cut , flip the piece concave side up, and transfer the measurements from your pattern onto your copy. Its much easier to cut the line running it through the band saw upside down this way.
