A simple cove needed to replicate a piece of baseboard in our old house means an opportunity to use one the #45’s special hollow and round cutters. First, mark the desired profile on the edge of the board:
Notice the square rabbet that’s marked. I’ll use the #78 to remove the bulk of the material in this cut.
Time to outfit the #45.
The first passes pull only the narrowest pair of shavings.
But after a few more, the cutter ‘bottoms out’ and the cove is done!
That’s it, my first successful (and useable!) profile using the Stanley #45 12R. Thanks for looking!
