I am going to make a slender (1 inch wide, 3/4 inch thick) frame for a
clock. I have a couple of ineloquent ways to make the 1 inch round,
but I am surprised at how tough this seems to be on the surface. I
would like to do it on the router table, but I would like to use the
bottom (flat) surface for reference. I would have to have an overhead
router or a multi-router for that (I think). Maybe some of you can
shake this out for me. Here is the sketch showing the round cross
Only the standard ones. You bullnose and rip. May require a bit of extra
thickness on the outfeed to support it properly, but 3M 77 and paper's
cheap, if you don't want to use your jointer. If you don't have a bullnose,
quarter round twice.
Overhead router still spins the bit vertically. No real gain. You'd need
a horizontal router....
It took me a second to look at the minute details of clock-making. It's
a 'hands on' kind of hobby, eh? I could get all wound up over that.
The key is to have the time?
On the face of it, that hobby could drive me cuckoo.
..somebody stop me...
