How to – Cut rebates and trenches
a = 1/3 of the thickness of the Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees.
For example: If the wood is 45mm thick, then the An L-shaped cutout with one side, that is always at an end or side of a member, unlike a notch that is a U-shaped cutout. will be 15mm in and 15 Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch. deep. Likewise, if the wood is 1-1/2″ thick, then the rebate will be 1/2″ in and 1/2″ deep.
b = the thickness of the wood.
For example: If the wood is 45mm thick, then the trench will be 45mm wide and 15 mm deep. Likewise, if the wood is 1-1/2″ thick, then the trench will be 1-1/2″ wide and 1/2″ deep.
You can cut out a trench by using a circular saw. How much the teeth are angled out on a circular saw blade. the blade in the circular saw to the required depth and make multiple cuts across the cut-out area, and then clean out with a chisel.
You can cut a rebate with a bench saw or a circular saw. First mark the rebate i.e., along the The widest side of a piece of wood. and the edge. Set the blade in the circular saw to the required depth and run a cut along the marks, both face and edge.
Note: The off-cut from the rebate can be used as a A finishing wood. Fits under the soffit lining and against the cladding. to hold the glass in place.
