I close to finishing my new wood frog cage, only thing is when i cut the windows out the edge of the cut got a little jagged. anyways i taught about putting molding around the edge to hide it some, but i really dont care for the inside part of the wood were the cut is.

Is there some type of molding or fixture that i could use to hide the outside and inside edges of my windows, sorta like a L molding or something?

You could certainly use some corner molding or maybe some cove molding on the inside and and then frame it with 1/8” or 1/4” flat stock.

Thnx for the info, not to key to the names of these things so ya.

Looks like Corner molding would be the easiest, but do they make it in 1/2”x1/2” , thats the thickness from window to edge.

If not Cove & flat stock would do it, just means more money for restock in supplies

You would have to look and see if your local supplier has that size corner molding, I have seen it before. I agree cove wouldn’t really be worth the extra cost. It can be cut at 45s as normal. I have never used that small of cove, nothing under 3/4”.

Corner molding is cut at 45s but you have the make sure the long side is on the outside if that makes sense.

1/4” offset moulding should hide chipping

I can’t really explain it to well but if you cut a piece it will make better sense. Maybe these pics will help…?

I mark the Molding the way I need it cut so I don’t forget and then sneak up on the length so I don’t cut it to short.
