Vintage Detail: Ceiling Medallion

Custom cabinetmaker Larry Bucklan of Bucklan Design Woodworks used a molding gauge to copy the original medallion's profile which was then used to make a knife fitted into a spindle shaper that cut the profile from a length of 2½ x 2½ poplar. Then four pairs of molding strips were mitered at opposing angles: one end at 21 degrees and the other at 69 degrees.
