My 1st PIECRUST TILT TOP TABLE #7
In #6 we started routing with a plunge round of bit to start our
Pie crust detail. Now were are ready for our 3rd 20×20”
Pattern. Similar to the #2 pattern the 3rd pattern has to be set back using the same technique as before. This time because of the size bearing and router bit I set the pattern
Back 1 ¼” from the #3 pattern. After the same process of smoothing and trial and error I set the newest pattern on the out side edge lines and screw the pattern down . This time
I’m using a ½ round nose router bit with a 1 1/8” bearing.
This #3 pattern will be cutting this part of the pie crust detail.
The next step is to make #4 pattern for the bottom cut of the detail this time it is set back 1 1/8” and because of the length of the router bit it was necessary to make my pattern ½ “ thicker by adding a ½” piece of plywood to the top.
This is the area of the detail The #4 pattern will cut.
The next installment #8 will have a short review and begin with the use of our jigs and patterns on our actual table.
