I'm framing the face of a door and am looking to have the top board have a
1/8" or better reveal from the two sides.
My Sides are 3/4" MDF and I'm looking for something about an inch. I cant
seem to find anything to use at the lumber yard. I was thinking of taking
the sides down with a planer. Or taking 2x and ripping it down for the top..
Any Suggestions or comments would be helpful.
The guys that built my place used 1/2" MDF for the sides and 3/4" for the
top. They bought it from our local builders' supply yard already rounded-off
with a 1/8" radius, and pre-primed. It looks great.
1/2"x3 1/2"? Hmmm.. Haven't seen that one around here.
I found some DF thats the same Width of the MDF and is maybe a hair thicker
then 1/16" over the MDF, though Its not exactly what I want. So I was
going to take the 3/4" MDF and trim off maybe an 1/8" and see what it comes
Though you are right I have to take my 1/8" curve router bit to the DF to
give it the same shape as the MDF...
