Nice looking plaque. The edges look like they were done with a core box router bit.

Very nice. The edge profile adds a lot of visual interest.

The bit used in the router is a 3/4” cove bit used in a router table and the work is plunged into the bit for each scallop. SERIOUS CARE MUST TAKEN chance of kickback is high! Just remember: use push blocks!! deep scallops (1/2” & bigger) are done in two passes

Eagle,Looks real nice.Wouldn’t it be safer to do the scallops with a waste strip attached or clamped adjacent to the frame.I think that’d eliminate the kickback concern.Sort of like drilling a large hole half off the edge of a board.Cheers,Gary

Being that this is a site with everyone from beginners to masters I just like to inform everyone that it is not the norm for doing this type of work, it would be much easier on a drum sander, but kickback is all around us and we must be aware of it. I have been doing these plaques for 12 years now and have NEVER had a problem with kickback doing it this way. I believe this is due to my focus and FEEL for my machines.
