Shop Update for 12/16/16: Moulding Planes & Sticking Boards
Take a Walk and Make a Moulding
This week I have been making mouldings for my Blanket Chest and for some picture frames for Christmas gifts. The process of hand cutting mouldings, called sticking, is one of my favorite hand tool tasks. But it is put on a pedestal by many as mystical and difficult. Moreover there is a misconception that a lot of planes are needed to do it. Certainly you can get a lot of different complex moulders and even a lot of hollow and round planes, but I think you will be surprised just how many profiles can be made with just 3 planes.
