  • Finnishing a panel in the open position

    A question for Peter
    In your last two videos you open up the panel to wheel it.
    Then you close it up to get the shape and check the fit on the buck.

    At the end of the second video it looks to me that you have the panel 85%-90%
    You said from there it is time to smooth up and finish out the panel.

    So my question is:
    Do you continue to open the panel to smooth and finish on the wheel?
    Then close it back up as before?

    Or do you smooth and finish up in a more closed position to get the final shape and fit?
    Hope the question makes sense

    Yes David always open the panel in order to use the lowest crown anvil, get it real close, as smooth as possible, then close up and check .If the panel fits and there is only minimum touch up you can then use a higher crown with little pressure and finish off, make sure to mark the panel while close where it needs to be re wheeled so you only wheel where it's needed,and of course there is always a bit of blending to do. If the panel you are making is flatter then obviously there is no need to open it

    PS sometime the panel does not have to be open all the way, you can wheel a bit side ways to with the flatter anvil

      Peter thank you for the answer to that question.
      It tells me I really have to develop an eye for shape and form.
      I have to learn how to see what an open panel will look like closed.
      Its like I have to see shape going into the panel almost before its there

        Correct !
        The Paper Pattern will help you see that or carefully look at the panel you are trying to make and think ... if I was to make this panel out of clay what would I be doing with my hand and fingers ? OR what would happens to that blank when a female and male die lands on it with 100 tuns press ?
