Custom Knives, Custom Moldings

A tour inside The New England Woodworking Company's millwork shop

Length: 6:53
Produced By: Tom Olivares

This video explores how The New England Woodworking Company, a Middletown, R.I.-based millwork shop, creates custom and reproduction moldings. After a series of  computer-aided-drawings are created in-house or supplied by an architect, profile knives are ground and then inserted in sophisticated cutting machines. Most knives are created from flat bar steel, but carbide steel can also be used when cutting hard woods, like teak.

And for more, watch Creating Custom Curved Moldings to see how the machines aid craftsman in making unique moldings for cabinetry, windows and doors.
