I have finally finished cutting the frame profiles. I decided to make a bunch of small frames, rather than just one. I really like framing, but boy am I dreading the mitering and glue up!
But before getting into the mitering (next blog entry), I wanted to show off some of the profiles. The first two pictures are of the frame I took from the plans on the American Woodworker website. I really enjoyed doing that one.
I already tried once on a cove frame I cut, and I just can’t get those miters to fit right. So if you have any suggestions, I will take your advise ingto account. I have hear of using a burnisher to force the miters to close, sanding, or more accurate table sawing. What do you think? Sorry about the picture quality.
Well, before I cut any miters, I think I will do some preperatory sanding. l
By the way, I discuss using the craftsman molder head in the previous blogs, but there is also a good discussion here by bkhop pertaining to the shopsmith. It is relevant to molding work in general and to these kinds of cutter heads:
