Hi everybody
I am making some new kitchen cabinets for myself and would like to add some cornice. I would prefer to make my own if it is not going to be too compicated. It doesnt have to be too flashy as it is a counrty pine look so just keeping it simple. I have a decent router and table, had a look in Axminster catalouge at there cornice cutters do you need to make multiple passes with these cutters?. Not sure of what size cornice I am wanting around 2 inch or so I think.
Thanks in advance Phil.

Hi Phil,

You don't need to buy a specific cutter. You can build up
a cornice using round-overs,core, chamfer, etc,etc. Draw a profile
of the cornice you want on graph paper,(to scale) and
match your router bits to each section.
OK, so it's multiple passes but your own design and no
extra layout.

Hi Phil...............i'm just wondering.........is it for the top of the cabinets or the bottom? :?
if its for the top, then why not just run your stock through your table saw using your mitre angle.........this way you can build up a nice curved cornice.......all you need to do after that would be to square up the top and bottom so its nice and square to the cabinets :D.
hope that makes sense :oops:.
