A (Fig. 1) shows the true section of the raking moulding. The five points have been taken in the ciu-ve, and lines 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 drawn through them. Then from these points perpendiculars are drawn to the bottom line - Nos. 1, 2, 3,4, and 5; also C. From E draw the vertical line a'E, and at right angles to it a' c'. Now mark off the divisions a', b', 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and c' as shown, making them correspond to a, b, etc. Next raise ordinates, making them intersect their respective raking line as shown. Through these points draw the curve, and complete the section of the level moulding. To obtain the mitre, project the plan as shown at Fig. 2; then take the distance EF (Fig. 1) and mark it off on the plan as shown at E' P'; project across to G, and join F' to G. Then the bevel for the mitre of the raking mould will be that shown at L, and that at K for the bevel mould.
