I am trying to finish up my first major furniture project (a tv stand),
and want to ask for your expert advice. I need to route what I guess
you would call the dust skirt of this project. At any rate, it's the
bottom piece of molding just above the feet.
I've picked a profile for this edge based on some sheraton furniture
I've seen in a book. It doesn't match any standard router bit, and I
can't figure out how to route it short of buying a custom profile. I
am sure it can be done with standard bits, but I'm not sure how. the
profile kind of looks like two bullnoses on top of each other, but
offset so that the lower one is wider or further out.
A drawing of the profile I'm looking for can be found in this article
on my blog:
The closest thing I can guess is to use a router table, make one pass
with the fence right over the bit to do the bottom part, and then lower
the bit height and move the fence out a little to do the top part.
If any of you have ideas, a reply to this post or a comment on the blog
article would be greatly appreciated.
You answered your question with the picture:
You need to "build up" the molding using three
seperate but easy molding to make. That pretty
easy based on what your drawing show.
Thanks for the suggestions guys, but the piece is already designed,
cut, and glued up. The design of this piece calls for milling this
edge on a solid 3/4" piece, so building up with 2 thinner pieces is not
