Topic tags/keywords: question

I have been asked to make heart pine thresholds( is that the right spelling) Anyway any suggestions on how to cut the angles? and what the angle should be? they are very wide to match existing 4-1/2” and will have to be at least 3’4” thick.

I made one for my son’s house, used oak. I cut 15 degrees, and it was 6” wide. Finished the shape with a orbital sander. Turned out great.

Tile underlayment can be a bear :)

I’ve got two maple thresholds: one goes between laminate (!?) and maple, it’s about 1.25” wide, maybe 1/4” tall, rounded over edges. T’other is between tile and the laminate, is about 3-3.5” wide, again about .25” tall, angle is ~12-15 degrees, cut on a TS.

Have your say...
