Been self learniong woodworking over the last few months. As a simple project, I built a narrow cabinet to house/hide an old intercom system. All went well until the door. It is a sinple overlay on a face frame. The frame of the door will hold speaker cloth instead of a panel. Here's where I got over my head.
I used a router bit with a bearing to create a 3/8" rabbet around the inside edge of the door frame. The idea was to create a ledge to attach the speaker cloth to and them place some kind of molding over it to clean up the edge. What I didn't realize is that the bearing naturally created rounded corners. Those that know what they are doing will tell me no problem; but I have been struggling with deciding how to deal with those rounded corners and install the molding. Some ideas that came to mind are:
- Chissel it square - Not sure I trust myself at that
- Carve out the underside of the molding to overlap the curve and thus square it
- Try two parts to the molding. One to fill the rabbet and the other to overlap the first and the curve.
I am proabably writing too much; but would appreciate any advice from the experts out there
Thanks in advance
