I suppose my alternative is to glue up and laminate the stock, to make the rough curve and thicker stock (along the seams), then carve/sand down to the appropriate curve/contour.
I think I need to be successful with the curve/bend aspect of the panel, first, before I can address the raised panel aspect.
I've never attempted curved doors, so I don't know if either of these approaches is best/appropriate. Any assistance would be appreciated.
I've checked out these 2 sites, so for, but I think I need more "schooling" for my particular doors. http://www.miterclamp.com/radius/pages/Radiuscabinetphotoessay.htm http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/Curved_cabinet_doors.html
