PMF question-rounding edges of doors and jambs

Postby Mr. Lahey » Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:52 am

Hello all,

I plan to canvas cover my tear. I am fitting my doors and have allowed for canvas wrap around jamb and door edge.

Question is do I need to round over the edge of doors and jambs to help canvas wrap around edges?

If so how much?
Just round edges mildly with small sander, or go bigger with a router with small round over bit?

Thanks!

What weight and type of canvas? Try it on a piece of foam.
I did not need more than a gentle sanding with 10Oz that
I used.

Thanks!

I too am using 10 0z. canvas.
So I 'll just round edges lightly with my small hand sander.
