Molding

Molding - Decorative Profiles In Workpiece Surfaces

Purpose of the Molder

Create Decorative Profiles in Workpiece Surfaces While the dado is perfect for cutting square-edged dadoes or grooves... and the shaper is your best choice for edging work... the molder really shines at creating a variety of standard or self-designed decorative patterns or shapes in the surfaces of workpieces.

You'll use it to create your own unique picture frame designs; to make architectural casework or moldings; to reproduce antique moldings that are either difficult-to-find or no longer available. The list goes on.

It's also a great choice for producing a variety of specialized joints such as: glue joint; tongue-and-groove; cabinet door panel joints; drop-leaf table edge joints; and more.

The molder is used in the table saw position and is best suited for adding decorative touches to workpiece surfaces. This application is commonly used with door and window frame moldings, picture framing stock, and surface treatments of furniture components like table aprons or chair rails.

The molder's major limitation is that it is only capable of forming profiles in a straight line... since all stock must be guided by the Mark 7 or Mark V's rip fence.

Combinations of Knives for Unique Results

Some knives are designed to do a specific job like cutting glue joints, door and cabinet lips and three-bead moldings. Others, however, are described as combination cutters and are usually set to shape a portion of the the final profile.

Here are just of few of the many unique cuts you can make using molding knives in combination.
