Stalled out a bit making fenders,. At about 1.5 hour a pair and then the router ate a couple of pairs and then one pair were not even close to a match, then another pair the wood fractured.
Here is a couple of pics of my first attempt. You can see one of the ways of working with small pieces is to mount you hand held tools like my ROS upside down and bring the piece to it.
The fenders turned out very nice but then the router ate them.
On the final attempt I then decided to glue the blanks together and then cut and shape them as one. This worked like a champ…..so here are attempts 8 and 9 at the bottom of the pic….
To resolve the issue with pieces tipping into the router bit I mounted a scrap piece of thin plywood across the router table and slowly raised the bit through the ply to make a zero clearance insert. I still got a small amount of cross grain tear out, but nothing that a little sandpaper cant clean up.
