This week’s seminar focuses on cutting cove moldings. Not the kind you’ll find around the ceiling, but the kind that “crown” the top of a cabinet. In this case, the editor’s of Woodsmith needed some custom molding for a media center that was featured in a recent issue of the magazine. Rather than go out and buy stock molding off the shelf, they made their own on the table saw.
It’s an interesting technique and one that uses the table saw in a different way. First, the table saw is used create the shallow cove profile. The secret is to push the cove molding blank across the blade at an angle. Then, the table saw gets used in a more traditional manner to add the simple bevels that give the molding its unique shape and fit. These two distinct operations result in a piece of molding that’s one of a kind.
Ted Raife, senior editor for Woodsmith will host the seminar. It start’s on Thursday, February 26th at 6:30 pm at the Woodsmith Store in Clive, IA.
