Cutters are an indispensable decor for home decoration. To make moldings, you only need to follow these steps.
1. Cutting a larger bevel
Cutting saws cut moldings quickly and accurately. But sometimes it can be a daunting task to cut bevels on wide wood blocks like traditional moldings.
The molding must be placed face down to complete the cut. You can fix it securely on the saw with the L-clamp to complete the cut.
Make sure the two flat surfaces behind the moldings are in full contact with the backing and clip base. Then attach a piece of wood to the front of the fixture to keep the moldings from sliding forward while cutting.
Use the molding scraps to find the crate. A couple of screws are great for temporarily attaching the strip to the base so you can reposition the strip if the moldings are a different width.
Insert the molding into the fixture with the top edge of the molding facing down towards the battens. Then cut.
2, "planing" an inclined surface
For large bevel cuts, it is essential to have an exceptionally smooth cutting surface for bonding. If you have a sharp hand planer, the quality of the surface you create is unmatched by any other tool. A planer is a great tool for fine-tuning bevel cuts. Using block fixtures, make controlled cuts to plan the bevel.
First, clamp the molding so that it rests lightly on the corner clamp post, and then secure it in place.
Any type of planer can be used, but for more control over the cutting process and for best results, you should use a large plane with a low angle for cutting. Pressing the bottom of the planer firmly against the backing, chamfer or cut along the grain.
To avoid bumping into the fixture, stop planing just as the bevel is flush with the backing.
3. "Elongated" wire legs
The moldings are cut, but it turned out that this is the last piece of wood, what should I do? Don't get discouraged, you can "lengthen" the molding, meaning increase its effective length, by using a hand planer to cut the back of the molding.
Carefully align the back of the molding (i.e. the smaller side) checking for alignment until the bevel lines up with the appropriate mating surface.
The tip of a bevel that meets it in this manner must pass over the planed mouldings, but skillful cutting or sanding of the joint can make detection difficult if the two bevels are not at the same level.
4. I saw a beautiful bevel
Some small and fragile moldings can easily crack if cut with a rotary saw. The safest way is to cut the bevel with a hand saw. Pre-made clamps help control the cut and guide the movement of the blade.
To make your own fixture, first cut a deep groove in the center of a piece of wood the same width as the moldings. Use a flat drill to make shallow holes that are easy to poke with your fingers. Use a combination square to mark the size of the bevel on the wood block, then use a fine-toothed jigsaw to cut the groove along the marked line.
Insert the molding into the block, align the bevel of the cut with the mark on the molding and use the same saw to cut the block.
5. Make stitches bigger
If you need to join large moldings in the corners on the inside of a piece of furniture (for example, attach moldings to the corners of a room), it's best to install one of the full sections first and then work on the adjacent ones. moldings so that they exactly match the installed moldings. When using this method, even when changing the moldings or connecting surfaces, there will be no clearly visible gaps between the moldings.
The appropriate onboarding process is easier than you might think. First, chamfer the inside of the piece to be installed and use the L-clamps to hold the piece of wood in place.
For right-handed people, it's easiest to set the left side to the right, so plan your cuts accordingly. Similarly, if you are left-handed, start on the other side and work on the right side first.
On a woodworking table, use a bow saw to make straight cuts at right angles to the top, bottom, or middle of the moldings. Sections must be precisely joined, not just spliced. For the most accurate fit, hold the hacksaw at a slight angle and angle back.
When you cut a curve, you make a bevel along the cut line. As before, hold the bow saw at a slight angle and angle back.
When two parts are joined together (from top to bottom on topstack, as shown), the parts located at right angles are precisely joined so that the outlines of the parts to be joined follow the bend of the molding on the opposite side.
