Back Out - Relief / Moulding Profiles

     From our "Utility Series", Back out and relief cuts are an essential part of the moulding process. They cut a basic shape in the bottom of the moulding allowing the outside corners of the wood to more reliably contact the substrate. This is crucial on uneven surfaces such as "bridging drywall to jamb", or for creating a stable flat product such as flooring. Opening up the top and bottom grain of the wood will allow the freshly machined piece to stabilize and dry evenly with less cup and warpage.

Please Note: These profiles do not have a PDF that can be clicked and printed like the decorative moulding profiles
