but it doubles as a disguise for screws holding the backsplash on to the
I'm completely new to metal working (unless you count soldering copper
plumbing pipe, or soldering electronic components on a circuit board).
Once the molding is cut, the end looks unfinished. What is normally done
to make that look good? Are there end-caps? In wood working, I'd miter
the end at 45 degrees and build a small "return", using finish nails. I
guess I could miter the stainless steel molding, and then solder a
return on ? If so, what type of soldering equipment and solder should I
use? And wouldn't all this discolor/scratch the stainless steel, and how
would I avoid that? Wouldn't the solder be a different color ? And how
to avoid the solder looking misshapen ?
In the corners, I was thinking of mitering, but again, how do you attach
two pieces together? Are there fittings (like copper plumbing), or is
soldering the way to go?
Finally, this sounds like a lot of new techniques to learn, and I'd
rather hire someone to do this, but don't know how to find the right
person for a job like this. I don't even know where to look in the
