-Width of cut corresponds to radius of circle
Hollows and rounds, used individually or in combination, will shape the curved surfaces of any molding ranging from simple quarter rounds, coves and bullnoses through side beads, ogees, astragals and ovolos.
You will use them to create that one-off, specific molding or edge you’ve seen in museums or antique shops. You will use them to scale moldings from a plan that you have scaled to fit your clients’ desires. You will use them to slightly change the shape of a routed profile to exactly match an original or your imagination. These planes will change your profession or hobby.
