half-round rope molding

Postby pipingguy » Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:36 pm

before i physically mutilate the pre-finished poplar subject item that's supposed to adorn a cabinet-top crowne molding with an outside corner, i tried doing it with skp....but with no luck. maybe if the two workpieces had opposite hands, but they don't.

The trick is to join both pieces of molding so either the high points or the low points on the edges meet.

Then miter them.

Flip one of the lengths of molding end for end and adjust the position so it looks more like a continuous run of rope. around the corner.

i tried it without benefit of a left hand plus a right hand rope. close enough. a little sanding and touch-up paint and no one will notice unless they are a basketball player. :D

The "real" trick is to do it in situ. When a number of inside and outside corners have to match.

Get the Douzukinoko saw out! For numerous 1/32 inch cuts to adjust the length.
