I have started a custom made table with the top being made out of an old Cable Spool end and fire sprinkler pipe. As you can see in the images, the black dirty edges is what the entire table looked like. I have cleaned up the top and bottom, and now i would like to use a router to clean up the edge and remove a 1/4” – 1/2” of material. The Edge has some flat spots, so i think a jig would be good to hold the router and make a perfect (or close to) circular shape and flat edges.
The problem i am encountering is the depth of the table. It is 3-1/8” thick. So, i will need a little over 1.5” deep router bit, do they exist?
Also, there is a large hole in the center (I will eventually be making bigger for a fire bowl) that prevents me from making a jig arm that would attach at the very center and the router to create the circular shape. . Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can accomplish this? I am limited to hand tools and some small power tools as I am just started with my woodworking projects.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
