Hi all, my current project is building a cherry cradle based upon the
To cut the curves, I've made templates using MDF and I'm using the 2" depth,
1/2" diameter, 1/2" shank laminate flush trimming bit from Lee Valley. Most
of the pieces are just under 1" thick. During the routing process, when I
go from end grain to straight grain, I'm getting some serious chipout. Two
questions. First, is my choice of router bits appropriate? Secondly,
should I climb cut these areas to reduce the chipout?
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
