I was asked by a router bit company to make some sample doors for them for
the Hardware show starting in Toronto this weekend and for the Woodworking
show at the end of February. I was asked to make two samples of each set,
one glued up and one glued at only two of the four corners. I was given
eight rail and stile sets of various configurations. Ogee, Cove, Quarter
round, mini's, w/backcutters, etc., 24 bit changes and set-ups.
The one real PITA was the lock mitre samples, 10 sets each for 5/8" and
3/4". I had never set up a lock mitre bit before, and doing so without
instructions was a bit of a challenge. I got it with about 5 test cuts for
the two sizes of bits, but it was harder than I thought. The 10 sample sets
for a drawer lock bit were certainly easier. (piles of boards on the right)
The doors turned out nicely, and I now own almost every possible profile...
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.
