Is there anyone out there that would like to share an opinion on this hood detail?
Silly question, I know. There are plenty of you with opinions.:laughing:

we have the single bolection molding

Or the double 3/4 half round

3/4 half round..gives almost a frieze type look, which to me seems appropriate there. Gives the hood, at least to me, more of a structured look leading to a sense of strenth if you will....



...also the single bol. molding leaves more to be desired at the very bottom of the hood.

Double Bolection with a triple Lindy.
Seriously though, the bolection fits the look of the rest of the hood IMO.

Picture #1. But I would also do something with the bottom. Maybe take a 5/8" quarter round and plce it on the 3/4" edge under the hood.

I really don't like #2 at all


So it's unanimous #2 it is.....:laughing:

You're one of my heroes here Gus. Keep up that fine craftsmanship.
Thanks for that.

Truth be told I haven't touched this job.
Other than sell it, draw it, get the code to the cnc, order everything, answer all the questions, make the owner feel confident, pump up the GC's image.
And run to the bank.

Wayne is a great cabinetmaker. I'm lucky to have him. I'll tell him you like his work.

Ok I can see that, something to balance the bolection on the bottom edge. You the man Gus :notworthy. I want to come live in your shop!
Sleeping on the bed of that CNC is guaranteed to give you bad dreams.:shutup:
