Can anyone describe to me what crowning studs is? I have been told before by someone from contractortalk but I didn't totally understand. Also when your cutting wood at an angle like a 45* angle and the wood is say 5 ft. just to put a number down then you have other pieces you want to connect the same way. How do you find what angle to cut it at so the angled cut is flush with the other cut or whatever you are attaching it to. I'm not building anything yet I was just curious...
Thanks for all your help
I asked the same question in a PM recently... I do not think the author will mind me sharing his response.
May I assume that crowning is making sure that any crook or side bend in a stud is placed so that similar bends in other studs are all pointing in the same direction like this:
( ( ( ( ( ( ( (
)))) ))) )) )
rather than ignoring it and leaving them in whatever random order they come in like say this:
(())( ()(( ((():
The response from Mike
crown side always up. You look down the piece of wood if its kinda bowed alittle thats the crown side it should be up. TEETOR WILL BE ALONG HE CAN EXPLAIN THIS BETTER AND ANSWER THE ANGLE WOOD QUESTION :)
You cut 1/2 of the angle that you want to end up with. In your theortical case, you want a 45* finished angle. Cut the ends of your boards at 22-1/2* and when placed together, they will = 45*
This is a good beginners site http://www.hoistman.com/ Dan covers a lot of ground about trim and basic woodworking. He also has some plans all for free.
Thanks to all
