Thank you so much for such a detailed video on cove mouldings. I have never made these but this clears alot up on the subject and I may have to try it out. I really like the emphasis on SAFETY that you put into this video. Well planned and well executed.

Brian, this is certainly a first class video that explains the process well. I am familiar with the technique but had not considered simply ripping the molding into two halves and using 8/4 stock. These look to be a couple of great tips.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to produce the video.

Brian; Absofreekinlootely awesome! You need to figure a way to make some loot off of these. Your production quality and instruction is better than the last 2 ww dvd’s I paid for.
Thank you for sharing your work with us!
