Halving the angle also applies where a curved moulding meets a straight moulding of equal section, but in order to agree either the profile of one must be altered to coincide or the mitre-line must be curved (168:4). Mouldings of the same curvature but curving the opposite way, or those in which one curvature is quicker than the other, must also have curved mitres, and the only exception is two mouldings of the same curvature and with the same direction which require a straight cut (168:4B). Methods of determining the curve are described in Chapter 40, p. 363, Workshop geometry.
