Using Molding Planes With Matt Bickford

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Using molding planes with Matt BickfordStop making compromises with your router. Stop getting close to the moulding profiles you want. Learn how to use some of the most abundant moulding planes of the past to get the exact detail you want in the Using Molding Planes with Matt Bickford class.

Using molding planes

Hollows and rounds do not make specific profiles. They make specific arcs. Learn to transform these various arcs into scores of varying profiles.

From layout to execution, this weekend class focuses on creating various moldings with these extraordinarily versatile planes. You’ll lay-out and ultimately stick (plane) several moldings that range from simple coves and ovolos through ogees, cymas and various combinations.

The class focuses on hollows and rounds sized #6 and #10 along with a rabbet plane. Students have the opportunity to bring their own performing planes or they can use newly made planes by M. S. Bickford, planemaker. Students also have the opportunity to use a larger range of planes.

Each student leaves with a stick (or two) of moulding for a picture frame and the ability to transfer mouldings he or she sees in person or print into wood and onto their project.
