Now that I have a decent sticking board, I wanted to practice with some moulding profiles.
|New sticking board - 36" capacity|
|Started by sketching some 1 1/2" x 1" sections on poster board|
(and I also squared up some 1 1/2" x 1" x 15" long poplar)
|Drew in some reference lines and sketched a profile|
|A good question - what is the proper order for cutting your rabbets|
|Started with the uppermost wide, shallow rabbet.|
Placed edge of a shoulder plane in the gauge line to get it started.
|First rabbet done|
|Adding the gauge lines for the second rabbet|
|Made the second rabbet|
|And the third rabbet is complete|
|Rounding the profile using a hollow|
|The result on one end|
|And on the end where the cut begins, with poster board profile held to the end|
|Marked out the profile|
|Marked rabbets for the two fillets|
|Added rabbet location for the cove and numbered the rabbets|
|After cutting the rabbets|
|Penciled in the extents of the cove on the flats|
|Using the two edges of the rabbet to guide the round plane.|
Note how each edge gives a shaving, resulting in double shavings.
When you get a single full width shaving, you know you're just about done
|And here's the result|
|Two nice profiles so far|
I'm off for some R&R - catch you all in a couple weeks.
