Tip of the day – Splines

vertical-splines

When reinforcing mitres place the splines as close as possible to the inside surface.   If they are too close to the outside surfaces, the mitered ends of the adjoining surfaces will be weak.  It’s not the splines that make it weak but the grooves made for the splines that make it weak.

 

Btw I haven’t given up on the moulding planes, I’m just a little busy designing a small router plane that will help in the build of the moulding planes.
