new kitchen cupboard door

Well, after a 3 1/2 year interruption (the twins) I have resumed my work at re-facing the cupboards in our kitchen…

Perhaps you could guess, but I am doing them in oak, frames & panels. Here with some accents in black walnut & Atlantic white cedar. The whole thing, if it ever gets done, will be a total mix-up of patterns and styles, all falling within the general outline of seventeenth-century stuff. This pattern is copied from stuff from the Connecticut River Valley, c. 1675-1700 give or take.  The panel was a practice piece a while back, so I made the frame this past week or so…and fitted the walnut & cedar the other day. Now some more finish, then start to figure out how it will fit in the scheme of things.

    The sun burst flowers on the lower half of the panel above, what type of gauge/chisel do use to create the outer saw toothed pattern ring? Do you use a flat chisel or the very slightly curved gauge used in the cleanout of the background to make the vertical chops? I think I see the rest of the steps and tools used, but the outer ring of the flowers has stumped me.
