Topic tags/keywords: router bed router profiles woodworking router bits question tip jig

Please look at the last image of this bed- the bottom rail. They have done something….like a chamfer bit on the top two sided with stops blocks for keeping the ends square to make the shadow line. I am trying to recreate it. Any ideas?

Thanks!!

It’s exactly what you describe, a chamfer bit stopped before going through the edge. Probably routed before cutting the tenons so there’s some wood to support the router. Relatively easy to do either free hand or on a router table.

Yep I do that on my router table, I just stick masking tape on the fence to mark where to start and end the cut. Test with a scrap piece.

You can also do a simliar treatment with a cove bit.

I use start/stop blocks on the fence to locate the length of the cove/chamfer.

Hello Welcome to Ljs
If you have a table saw why not do a bevel on it? I missed the part about leaving the ends square,

Have your say...
