(d) To Cut Diagonally Across the Grain.
To cut a straight
slanting corner, as shown in figure 84 on the following page, as much waste
wood as possible is first removed with a saw.
Clamp the work in a bench
vise with the guideline horizontal.
Use the chisel as in cutting
horizontally with the grain ((b) above). It is necessary to chisel with the
grain and to hold the chisel so that the cutting edge is slightly diagonal

A plain chamfer runs the full length of the
edge and is usually made with a

can be planed and the ends
