I would like to build a chip rack for a blackjack table.
What I need is 1 x 1/12 square stock with 1 side ( on the 1 1/2 side) that
has concave so as to accommodate a stack of chips.( that are 1 1/2 inch
Can someone tell me the name of what I am looking for...if it exists?
Not sure it you can buy stock of the specific size you need, but you can
purchase a router bit to cut the groove that you want. Of course, it depends
on the radius of your chips, but there's a variety of sizes you can choose.
Here's a few samples. If these aren't large enough, then it's a simple
matter of making two parallel cuts instead of one exact cut to fit.
Just one more point:
Make the stock thicker than needed for handling over the router (or
shaper?) ...for safety. Then cut down to size on the table saw. If
doing 2 or more, it's handy to do one side, turn over for the other,
then saw down the middle.

This article might be of use:
"Cutting Coves on the Tablesaw," in the January/February 2004 issue of
Fine Woodworking (#168).
I'd start with wide stock, use double fences, push blocks, and very
light passes. You'll want all ten when you are done :-)
Norm had a 1 1/2" radius ovolo bit. :-)
Some of these panel raising bits scare the p.. out of me. I can't imagine
using a 3 hp power tool that's not stationary.
That's why I like your jointer plane. It has hp that I'm comfortable with.
I looked I only had the 1" and the 2" i think the both are 2" around and have a
2" radius. but I use so little it is not scary at all. I will wear the thing out
one of these days but only the tip will be worn (G)
