Malc,

Looks a nice piece, well done.

Those mistakes are all good experience, they might not seem it at the time, but you never stop learning.

As for shooting boards, they have been disscussed a few times in the past, so a search on the "search forum" facility above should bring up some answers.

Cheers.

Baz.

Malc,

the first lesson of mitres like those is to leave the piece over-long, then adjust, then cut to length once you are happy with the joint.........or chuck it away and start with a new piece of wood!

Old hands here will not be surprised when I say that I would adjust mitres like this with the belt sander. I would really prefer to do it on my old dad's 20+inch disc sander, but one of my brothers got that ahead of me!!!

I don't have  a shooting board, but it is the same principal: cut it as close as you can, then adjust..........only this time with a plane on its side. 

Mike

That looks great.

Just type shooting board into Google and you'll get all the help you need to make shooting boards.

                     Malc.  If you go www.wealdentool.com  they have two router bits called

                    torus-chamfer and the other called edge reed both these bits are similar to what you

                    are looking for.

Err, you did Malc... I posted this url at the start of the thread, although it didn't appear as a link, saying to look at the corner bead option.

 Still, it looks like a nice job anyway!

cheers,
Andy

PS. this one doesn't appear as a link either! Must be me

Dear all,

My next project is a shelf unit for a spare bedroom that currently has a veneered chipboard monstrosity. I want to put a quirk bead on the edge of the sides.

What router bit should I use for this?

I have not found any bits that says "Quirk bead" but there must be something out there to cut this.

Any ideas.

Thanks,

Malc.

Hi Malc,

 A quirk is simply a step in a moulding.
A simple way to see a quirk is to look at an architrave where is meets the door lining. The step or backset between the edge of the lining and the start of the architrave mould is a quirk line.
On a router cutter, a roundover bit that has been dropped down into the work to form a small rebate as well as the roundover is a quirk. (An ovolo is essentially a roundover with a double quirk)
Others such as ogees etc have quirks as an integral part of their design.

hope this helps.

Andy

Thanks Andy,

It seems that I have the terminology wrong, this is what I mean.
