I am starting a cedar hope chest soon with some free cedar that was given as a gift. My plans call for raised panels which I have been wanting to try. The only router bits I can find are for 1/2 inch shank and I have a 1/4 inch shank router. I really can’t go out and get $200 worth of bits and a new router at this moment. I tried a test panel on the table saw holding the panels vertically on a high fence jig and it turned out pretty well. I have been studying on trying to do it horizontally on the table saw making a cove cut.
Are there any thoughts or recommendations on these methods? If so, I have seen some information on putting the temporary fence at 90 degrees and some putting it at various angles. Which is preferred?
