After the machining process, these will create a octagonal shaped column by joining eight pieces of lumber together, we purposely left a few thousandths of an inch void in the joint area for glue to escape from during fabrication. We have had great success using Scotch or 3M # 355 tape for tight joints and easy assembly, this tape does not stretch which will insure the joint does not move while drying, after the drying process has been completed use a small amount of naphtha to dissolve the glue on the tape, you don't want the tape to raise the grain of the lumber, you can create some of the finest looking octagonal shaped columns or newel post in the woodworking industry with this knife pattern. From just an idea in one's mind, to reality in their home, our moulding profiles reflect the beauty and style of your imagination, let us help you design a custom pattern today.
For knife quoting purposes use the calculator below, we have added only the important measurements. A brief detailed explanation on how to use the calculator is located here. Need some assistance with the dimensions? Print a copy of our fraction - decimal - millimeter chart, place it on the moulder to help operators save time and increase accuracy during machine setup.
Thickness = .750" / Depth of Cut = .444" (right blades) & .358" (left cutters).
