Used to add depth to cabinetry and furniture, chamfers are bevels usually cut at a 45-degree angle along an advantage. They may be cut on a table saw with the blade tilted or with a router fitted with a chamfer bit. Chamfers usually aren’t cut through the entire depth of a part and render some portion of the edge intact, revealing portion of the original 90-degree edge.

Stopped chamfers add a fantastic amount of architectural interest to cabinetry. They create more places to add an antiqued and distressed appearance.
