I'm finishing the last part of an installation of a tray ceiling on a
porch. The 19"-wide part between the walls and the ceiling slant in at
21 degrees from the horizontal. The ceiling has molding around it. The
corners where slant-meets-slant-meets-ceiling-molding need molding to
cover the imperfections of earlier carpentry. I am essentially trying
to fit a board onto a corner of a cube at an oblique angle to all
surfaces of the cube.
Setting aside the angles for now, I can't figure out how to make the
cuts. I'm essentially trying to make the hollow of a point--and
anything that makes a cut to match an angle mars a different face.
Is there a power tool solution? Is this the time for hand tools? And if
so, which ones how used?
I tried gouging out the back of a test board with the table saw. To get
the height I needed took too much wood in length from the underside of
the board and it cracked on installation. My current thought is a
Any thoughts from the collected wisdom? I already know that if I'd
known it was going to be this hard I should have started differently ;-)
Thanks in advance.
