Kitchen cabinet molding ()

Wiley -my next couple of weeks are busy, but if this is something that can wait a month, I'd be glad to build you a fenced open-sided plane that would cut the broad part of this profile.

It would be ugly, but you wouldn't be able to complain much about the price and it would kind of just cut the moulding for you without much thought, leaving only the rounded top, which could literally be done with a bench plane and sandpaper.

Warren's bringing up of open mortise purpose-made planes years ago sort of sprung me into making a whole bunch of ugly single purpose planes. they're usually made mid-process, really quick to make, cost nothing (they're scrap) and they work an absolute treat because they only do one thing.
