Can anyone give me any tips on cutting kitchen cornice? I tried last night, but due to the curved surfaces both sides I was unable to get it 'dead' in both planes on the mitre block. They looked fine until I tried to meet them up...

Help please...

is it a hand mitre saw your using if so you find a bit of wood to sit
in the hollow at the back for support
the biggest problem is the top half of the moulding is above the back plate
so you could also make an L shape piece the same size as your moulding
to hold it square in the saw if your doing lots you can also put two small
battons on so the the jig will slip on the end and hold it all firmly together

I take it the cornice is for the top of the wall unit ? if so does it have a flat piece on the bottom so it can be screw into the top of the unit ?

Hi Masona,

Yes, it does, I was trying to get this to sit flat on the mitre saw base and thought I'd succeeded until I tried to match the two pieces together,

Right, you need a piece of flat wood ( 3/4"ply is better if you can ) then screw the cornice temporary to the plywood to the edge then butt this to the edge of the mitre stand and cut it very slowly with one hand supporting the top of the cornice while cutting.

Also it may be because the unit are not 90 degree

Spot on, just been checking out the talk pages on Screwfix and had a simliar suggestion, I guess I could screw the cornice to the base of a wooden mitre box?

I think big-all meant his suggestion in this thread.

Just a comment big-all, you break your sentences as if you have pressed the enter key at the end of the text entry box, like you would on a type writer. This makes your posts harder to read, and follow, and it is easy to misunderstand what you are saying.

See this for a very useful tool.

I don't like the wooden mitre block type, the one I use is similar to the picture

Sorry big-all I read your post again about 20 times and I think I've just about got it :!: I find very difficult to read it in short sentences but I'm very please on your last post that you have bought a widescreen typewriter :LOL:

the trouble is was i assumed the box infront was the typing area so i would try and make the lines nice and neat and wonderd why they didnt line up

by the time i realised i had done about 1000 posts sortof got into the habit of stopping at the end of the line and starting again :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D

punctuation next i suppose :rolleyes: ;)

and your saw example is the sort i was referring too :D :D
