Coping glazing bars by hand plane.
Thanks to help of blokes on this forum (especially those pictures javali. Ta) I can now cope glazing bars and rails by hand plane (woopi do)
Well, its a actually quite good I think, because I can try any profile I like. And make really small lean looking glazing bars which I think look good on door fronts or whatever.
Found a bit of time this arvo to have a go at coping them for the first time...so I'll show them off...... Just that through dowel idea from that picture you posted Javali.....the bigger ones I'll just use floating tenons for.
1st picture - staged a photo....haven't drilled the hole in the centre piece for the photo...but you'd get the gist
2nd picture - through in some glue and the dowl, and clamping up real hard to close all those gaps ......let it dry overnight....eh Silent.
I made the little flat on the top a bit too wide I think....proportions don't look right....but its the coping idea I wanted to trial.
I'm going to do a Lignum and Zenwood, and not tell you how I did it.... ........ yeh, so , uno, try it yourself !. ...

Ta Paul. Nice of you to say.
My first attempt at coping failed completely....so I'm thrilled it worked out well this time around.
Next chance I get I'm going to try and cope a fancy profile......... its got no flat on the top, which makes it difficult cause my depth stop or fence has little bearing....but I think I may have a way....just have to try it and see.
Major.....do you have a 4 and 1/2 corrigated stanley amongst your set? .....cause I've got an old one you can have to resurrect (spelling), the wood for the main handles missing, but the rest is fine. .... something for you to do when you've next got too much time on your hands
