Shaping machines are wood-working devices used mainly for chip-forming cutting of workpieces (narrow faces). Milling results in workpiece profiles.
Figure 1 - Simple workpiece profile forms
(1) fold, (2) plane, (3) slot, (4) grain, (5) quarter round, (6) quarter chamfer
A combination of various basic profiles can also be realised.
Figure 2 - Profile combinations
The combination of profiled faces ensues in various wood connections in furniture construction (tables, cupboards) and when making doors and windows.
