I would like to put a hardwood cap on a halfwall but where the two
pieces meet you get overlap at the mitre either above or below because
of the angle. The cap are 90 deg to each other and on side goes down a
stairwell. I tried to show this joint below. You can see (hopefully)
in the example below that when the two pieces are butted together and
lined up along the bottom you get overlap on top. If you line up the
tops then I get excess on the bottom but this would be visible too. I
was hoping to run a piece of trim underneath the cap but to make it
even along the bottom the only thing I can think of is notching. I was
hoping someone else might have some ideas or suggestions or even
different way to do this.
Thanks in advance
An ASCII (character) drawing won't cut it for your question. I think I
know what you are asking, but a real drawing, or photo would be a
really good idea. There are sites that will host drawings and photos,
so draw it completely, label it so we can understand exactly what we
are looking at, and perhaps someone can give you an answer.
The problem with any of the .binaries groups is that many of the
providers either don't carry them (due to government abrogation of
free speech) or don't allow image/binary files to propagate from other
Unfortunately the best solution is a web picture/image host sites,
which fortunately are in abundance and free.
I do like the binaries news groups, and yes, the providers are either
offered by your own internet connection (maybe) or like I do, use News Guy.
Anyway, I trade many photo's in photo groups and do enjoy the woodworking
news group.....all pictures and text....
