Figure 4-16. Here are some kerfed molding designs.
One way to individualize your work is with original molding designs like those in Figure 4-16. Most of these are done by using the kerfing method described for wood bending or variations of it. Thus, the kerf spacing guide used for bending kerfs can also be used for moldings. Instead of making the kerts on only one face of the stock, the work is turned over for each new cut (Figure 4-17). A fixture that is used for finger joints may also be used should you wish to produce wide notches using the dado head. Another way to produce exclusive moldings is to strip-cut pieces from stock that has been surface contoured with the molder.
Figure 4-17. Kerfs for moldings can be done using the kerf spacing guide used for kerf bending. Invert the stock and turn it end-for-end for each cut.
