*Using and applying the moldings in different ways
The scratch stock is a tool used for applying decorative treatments such as beads of ogees to furniture. It is in effect a reciprocating router. However, unlike the router, individuals can make the cutters into any shape or size they wish, such as a 1/16” bead, or a 1 3/16” bead. They say scratch stocks only work with dense woods and not across the grain, but properly sharpened and honed, they will cut almost anything in any direction. Finished pieces of moldings can be cut off and reapplied in many interesting ways.
