Re: planing concave curve

Agreed, a spokeshave is the way to go. Make sure it's sharp (which can be a challenge with a short blade), set it to cut thin, and hold the tool at a diagonal to the work rather than straight on. If it "chatters" on you, take a thinner bite and/or increase the diagonal. Once you get the tool tuned up and you get used to it, they're pretty enjoyable to use.
