I like the scallops, how did you do them? From the picture I’m guessing table or bandsaw some angles, then angle grinder or powersander to the shape you wanted?

Hi Will. i started with a squared up edge. drew a line all the way around the edge about 3/8 down from the top lip and also from the bottom.then comes the template for the scallop. i made it from bristle board . make a 12 inch square and divide it into a 1 inch grid.take your compass and make an 8 or 10 inch circle making sure that the two outside portions of the circle are equal.i then cut the circle in half and i then can move the circle grid in towards the center of the table to make the scallops bigger. i will post a series of pics for you when i find the template . it will take all the guesswork out of it and then i just use a belt sander and clean up with a palm sander
