How do you do yours?
How would you do it if you came across to this?
I have been using plan B for long time. Then yesterday a friend told me
that his WW'ing company does plan A all the time. I would prefer plan A
(makes the raised panels even on both sides), but plan B would be stronger?
This is about using biscuits and glue.
It's 3/4" thick lumber, with one cut at 45-degree on both sides. Then glued
all together. This makes a "safer" corner rather a sharp pointing edge.
I am asking which would be stronger (obvious Plan A), but was told that one
company does Plan B, so just wondering.
Obvious Plan A would be "stronger", but was told that one company does
Plan B, so just wondering.
As for using raised panels, I glue the RP onto the mitred cut, then sand
it. This will leave one side "2-1/2" and other "2-3/4" looks. I know I
could adjust the stiles to compensate... should I? Maybe not.
Hmm, in case you looking at this in a different way, I am looking at the
45-degree corners for the outside, while the inside would be hidden.
I still like using biscuits. I use pocket hole occasionally.
I never thought of anything like plan "A" until I bought
a Kreg PS jig about 2 weeks ago. It made a lot of sense
to me for my current project where the back side is
not visible (as shown in their owners booklet).
One thing is certain. It requires cutting only one angle
at something other than 90, so if you're trying to fit some
trim, you are only working with one edge.
Don't think that it's perfect for every situation, but it's
a good solution in some.
