Subject:
no motivation to try

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
If I was making long or frequent runs of cove I would consider the rounded point of a molding cutter. However for a few feet of cove for a single cabinet the time difference between methods is insignificant. With a curved scraper removing tooth marks goes quickly. Refining with sand paper wrapped around something approximating the curve is similarly quick.

With the light cuts from a saw blade a single fence and hand holds is sufficient for guiding the stock. I can calculate the required angle so set up is quick. I would suppose something more secure is required for the heavier cuts from the molding cutter?
