ive always found it better to leave a shoulder too, by accident or not

thank you for the entertainment

the shaper is way faster but nicely done

FYI. Crown moulding shouldnt be confused with Cove moulding .

you can also save a few bucks by skipping the 8/4 timber and the re/sawing cuz you pay more per board foot, the thicker the wood ?

When you think about it, the only face you ever see is shaped, what lies behind is purely excess ? Wasted money that could be in the pocket and I for one prefer my pockets full.

I guess the difference in my mind, is that I do this for profit and I look forward to the day when I can work by choice, and not profit : )) and maybe

nah

Great instructional video. It’s nice to see how other woodworkers perform their craft, thanks for showing.
