Profiling of edges creates added dimension to the finished product. A profile can also be functional through elimination of the sharp edges or corners and improving the handling ability of items.
Here are a few edge profiles we offer:
Round Over – Round over is a rolled edge similar to the upper edge of a countertop. The edge is shaped to create a waterfall profile to remove the sharp edge.
Bevel – A bevel is made by cutting a sharp corner at 45 degrees to create a flat blunt edge, Similar to how a diamond has different facets. This flat surface removes the corner or edge to form a 45 degree facet and adds dimension to the edge.
We offer two types of bevels, either a shoulder bevel or full bevel:
Shoulder Bevel – A 45 degree cut is applied to only half the materials thickness.
Full Bevel – A 45 degree cut is applied to the full material thickness. Like a ramp starting from the bottom and ending at materials full thickness.
Countersink – Countersinks are relief cuts made to holes that allows the use of countersunk hardware. Countersink screws will sit flush to the material’s surface and does not protrude like a traditional round head screw.
Rabbet – A rabbet is a recess or groove along the materials perimeter to create a ledge, flange, recess, or lap.
