Molding Alignment Jig

Recently, I was building the Cottage-style dresser featured in the June 2002 issue of Workbench. To dress-up the drawer fronts, I wanted to use small strips of half-round molding. The trick was trying to position the strips on each false drawer front so that they aligned from one drawer to the next.

To accomplish that, I used a simple hardboard alignment jig centered on each false front. This let me wrap the molding strips around the jig so that they ended up the same distance from the edges on all of the false fronts (see art).

The only thing you need to be careful of is to avoid accidentally gluing the jig to the false front. That's why I waxed the edges of the jig first.
