Do you have any pictures of your cutters or the type they are, there is no way anyone can help with the info you have given.

crown molding


The crown molding cutter makes a nice face profile, but you have to re-think the edges. If you are going to make the frame with the top of the crown tight to the wall, you have to figure for a step for the picture bihind the inside edge. If the crown sticks out into the room ahead of the picture, you need to figure out a different pocket for the picture so from the side the frame looks finished. I use a chair-rail profile with a 3/4" x 2 1/2" piece behind it. This piece is offset to the outside about 5/8". I route a classical edge on that piece. I actually make the flat back frame first about 1/4" bigger than my picture. I route around the outside edge, then cut the chair rail to fit on top. I glue and pin nail this layer on. This method makes beautiful frames, painted or stained.
