I have looked at a few of the posts and they look pretty technical so
this is probably a complete gumbo question but anyway!!....
I am about to start on my first diy project in our new house, renewing
the dado which has been REALLY badly done, it is a 1930's house and
one of the walls has quite a large curve on it.
I was basically wondering how I fit the dado around this? I have read
about cutting grooves in the dado but my very unexperienced logic
tells me the wood would just split?
Can you buy dado with grooves already cut?
Wood bends a lot. If the saw cuts are at the proper spacing and depth,
the thin outer layer will just bend. Moistening can help too.
Unless the wall is a *real* curve with a relatively small radius you
should be able to just bend without relief cuts.
