Topic tags/keywords: underlayment dimensions angle

I need some help from fellow woodworkers. I found a table edge profile that I really like, it’s called an underlayment. Anybody got dimensions for the edge that would work with 3/4” and 1.0” tabletops ? What is the angle (router bit) as the edge turns under ?
I have several tables waiting for this edge and I need to buy the correct router bit. Thanks

I’m not sure what your asking, it sounds like you want a bevel edged router bit? underlayment is what they call whats under lament counter tops. Do you have any photos?

That detail can be done easily on a table saw.

Jim, Thanks, What do you think the angle is for the bevel ? What would be a good looking and servicable dimension for the straight portion of the edge, say for 3/4” thick table top ?

It’s the kind of thing that you have to experiment with the thickness of material you want and start around 10 degrees and see what you think and adjust the angel until it looks like what you want. of course you have to experiment were on the edge your cutting too. If you don’t have a lot of experience using a table saw you need to extra careful cutting thin strips at an angle.
