Scribing is a furniture term that refers to the method of fitting together surfaces whose profiles are not identical straight lines. It is commonly used when joining two pieces of furniture or other surfaces to create a seamless and tight fit.
Scribing involves carefully tracing the contour of one surface onto the other, and then using tools to cut, shape, or sand the second surface to match the profile of the first one. This technique ensures a precise and professional-looking fit, especially when dealing with irregular or non-standard shapes.
Scribing is commonly used in carpentry, cabinetry, and woodworking to create seamless joints and eliminate gaps between surfaces.
