Stop flutes on Elfe chest on chest

I have it in my head that I want to build an Elfe chest on chest as pictured in Humphrey's book. The chest has chamfered stiles on the top half that are stop fluted. I am at a loss as to how this is done. Is it carved freehand or is there a jig set up with scratch sticks for the flute and then the stopped flute. All help appreciated

Thank you for your reply. I don't currently have any way to scan. I may be getting a new printer that has scan capability. Again thank you for your reply. Hopefully I will be able to scan the picture

If you have a phone with internet you can take a pic from the book, then email it to your computer and then post it on this site.

My Dad brothers and I made these a few years ago, we ran the flutes with a router bit and ran the stop fluted sections with a scratch stock, and carved the transitions.

Good luck. Cal
