PART III JOINER'S WORK CHAPTER I KERFINC, RAKING MOULDINGS, HOPPERS AND SPLATfS This department could be extended indefinitely, a the problems in joinery are much more numerous thait in carpentry, but as the limits of this book will not ermit me to cover the whole range of the art, even if First of all, I give several methods of "kerfing," for few things puzzle the novice more than this little problem. Let us suppose any circle around which it is desired to bend a piece of stuff to be 2 inches larger on the outside than on the inside, or in other words, the veneer is to be I inch thick, then take out as manysaw kerfs as will measure 2 inches. Thus, if a saw cuts a kerf one thirty-second of an inch in width, then it will take 64 kerfs in the half circle to allow for the veneer to bend around neatly. The piece being placed in position and bent, the kerfs will exactly close. Another way is to saw one kerf near the center of the piece to be bent, then place it on the plan of the frame, as indicated in the sketch and bend it until the kerf closes. The distance, DC, Fig. 1, on the line DB, will be the space between the kerfs necessary to complete the bending. In kerfing the workman should be careful to use the same saw throughout, and to f / cut exactly the same depth every time, and the spaces must be of equal distance. In diagram Fig. 1, DA shows the piece to be bent, and at O the thickness of the stuff is shown, also path of the inside and outside of the circle. Another, and a safe method of kerfing is shown at Fig. 2, in which it more
