Topic tags/keywords: table apron

I am having trouble finding more of the table apron I used on this piece. It has a half round on top that’s makes a raised lip. I am building an entry table and want more but can’t seem to find it anywhere.

If you have access to a router table this is easily made. If you material is 3/4 stock, use a 3/8 round over bit. Make a pass on one side, then flip it over to do the other side to form the bullnose.

Let’s say I don’t have access to a router table. Where would I find something like this. I dug this one out of a trash can. I am not above dumpster diving for good stock.

Whereabouts in Texas are you located? There main be one or more friendly LJ’s near you that could lend a hand.

I’ve picked up some good stuff at “garbage day curb sales”.

No router table, ok. You can wait for another find, odds, not so good.

Ed’s idea has merit, you can post another entry asking if someone is in your area.

I don’t know what the apron width is, or how thick. Some potential options. The big box stores should have a good selection of half round molding. You could glue/nail that onto some the aprons to achieve the effect.

You could search online for a mill shop. I’m sure the most expensive option.

Do you own or have access to a router? It easy enough to cobble something together to cut your own.

The edge? It’s called a bull nose edge,any place the sells molding would have it.even the big box stores.Or go to a cabinet shop and have them run you a piece.

Have your say...
