This is the second part of our curved routing series. This time I show you how to make a large, curved crown moulding in two layers, using regular bits and a very useful template method. I hope you enjoy it!

Well done Jim.

Thanks, Charles. I was going to do a pin routing section in the moulding chapter of this book, but I just don’t have the time in the schedule. But I definitely want to do some videos of it later on.

Today I’m working on reproducing the crown moulding from an eighteenth century Brewster Dayton High Chest, using common router bits. I’ll break it down into layers and cut each cove and bead individually. I’m using some of the mahogany chair legs I got from your scrap pile!
