Graphical Construction Glossary >> Woodwork. >> Raking Mould
The term does not refer to a mould that is fixed to an angle or slope. I refers to moulds that meet horizontal mould and match them by having their profiles adjusted.
Most joints like this are simply mitred, which would be half the total angle and there would be no reason to make a raking mould. In fact they have gone out of fashion with builder's using standard mouldings.
These special moulds were used a lot in the days of panelling and dado rails that followed on up and around stairs.
To get the profile used to be quite a painstaking exercise in geometry and plotting many points.
Not so today, modern CAD programs can do it in seconds.
Above is some wainscot or dado panelling that use raking moulds.
