Three-sided Molder

Woodmaster recently announced a new three-sided molder. It's supposed to handle pieces up to 12 inches wide and make cuts up to 1.125 inches deep. The system starts at $3,995, but if you're building or remodeling your own home, consider the cost of tongue-and-groove flooring. You could also make trim for finish work.

Instead of buying trim from a big-box store, you could cut your own lumber locally and finish it with a system like this. Purchasing the machine with a few neighbors and friends would be a really efficient use of resources.

While you're visiting the Woodmaster site, check out the molding patterns page.

This is really interesting. I don't think it would be really economical to buy your own three-sided molder unless you had your own wood working business. Then it would probably be a god send. It could vastly improve your work flow and cut out the need to buy supplies from someone else. Heck, you could probably make a living just harvesting and finishing wood to sell to other businesses. Check out these Injection Machine for business use or at home hobby molding. A little outside of your niche but could prove useful.
