    I am thinking of making picture frame molding. I was just wondering what method you all would recommend. Would you all use a planer molder or a shaper. Also what type of wood. Most of it would have a painted finish. It would be used in a small shop type business.

    really it depends on the moulding ken.....a shaper is very versatle but has problems standing on its own...same with a moulder.

    Like Tod said it depends, however if a shaper is used you should get a power feeder. This keeps from getting bumps in the stock where it lots contact with the cutter. Both are nice to have a molder you do you better if you plan on makeing tons of stock.
