Well after consulting with the client on the bar rail/moulding, I decided to make another style that didn’t have as much of an angle toward the patrons. The moulding is cut the same with regards to the cove and the roundover front/back edges. However, the under sides are not rabbetted such that the moulding is tipped upward. Instead, it lies flat on the bar top. The benefit to me is that it was much less work to cut out the underside (although it’s shown me that I need a dado blade). I think it turned out really nice and I’m (and more importantly the client) is pleased with the results.

First attempt at moulding:

Second and final style moulding:

Although this one is probably more logical, they both are impressive and nicely done.

As always, it’s what the client wants :-)

Hi James,

Table saw at an angle. It’s a symmetrical cove so the blade is set to 90 degrees. If you’ve never cut coves on a table saw before, don’t be scared off by the thought of passing a piece of lumber over a spinning blade at an angle. The key is a good solid fence clamped to the table saw top (or fences – one on each side of the stock if you prefer) and raising the blade a very small bit at a time. slow feed rate and steady pressure down on the stock – use push pads of course!

cheers
