MY 1ST PIECRUST TILT TOP TABLE #6

Were we left of in #5 is that we finished our second jig
For the next part of our pattern. At this point you should know that are large circle pattern has more than on purpose it is used to fine tune our width and depth of cut for our smaller 20×20” patterns so they can be used on the actual table top. So this is the time for our second sequince of router cuts ,we use a ¼”plunge roundover over bit with a1/4” bit. To make a step down around our pie crust table outside edge detail

The bit looks like this
Photobucket and the detail we are cutting is right here

If you remember we cut the second pattern back an inch . This can very depending on the type of router bit and it’s bearing we use .so this is ware we have to experiment with the depth of cut and if our pattern is to close to the outside edge or to far away. If it’s to close to the out side edge we have to take more off our pattern or change the size of the bearing and if we are to far away you can increase the size of the bearing or try an add to your pattern(pretty tough) or make another pattern. If you take your time planning it out hopefully you won’t have to make another pattern but if you do you can use this one for the next pattern we need to make.
When your #2 pattern is ready you place it on the same lines you made to start an screw it down. The next thing to do is drill some holes in the main pattern your routing, for you router bit to start in so you don’t have to do a plunge cut.
So here’s how it works

A caution here since this is a trial and error process you must minimize how big of area you test the dept of and width of your cuts on your main pattern when changing of bits and bearings and adjustments of the small patterns or you will run out off your main pattern to test. Don’t ask how I now this.

In #7 we will move on two the 3rd pattern

glad I could help, just like woodworking , one step at a time, and before you know it, you’re making it blindfolded.

Jim, you are a true craftsman. You work with routers like Rembrandt works with brushes. Looking forward to step 7.

It’s looking real good Jim. It seems that the most difficult step is making good templates. Am I correct in assuming that these templates will be reusable an indefinite number of times?
