Coping With Cove Molding


I'm working on some cove molding today and wanted to share this clamping setup I used to hold the molding after ripping it to width. Because the cove is already milled, the molding is tippy and hard to secure while bringing it all into very consistent width with a block plane. A few pieces of mdf and a few clamps are used to hold the molding upright while planing. It turned out to be a really solid setup.
