I’m building the chaise lounge from Woodsmith 171 out of white oak. I’ve cut the wheels using the circle cutting jig.
The next step is to hog out some material to form the axle hub and wheel edge.
The plan recommends a 1/4” radius bowl and tray bit for this.
I took the plan to Woodcraft and they sold me a 1/4” core box bit. My first attempt was disappointing, the bit creates a curved edge but does not flatten out the bottom very well. It looks like Woodcraft (and others) do carry a bowl and tray bit and the profile looks like it will flatten more than the core box bit. Would that be the way to go, or can anyone recommend another way to achieve this (without a lathe)?
