I am currently in the process of building a bar. I am cutting my own bar molding and have got to a point in the process where I need some advise. Here’s what I have so far…
1. First I started with a glued-up blank:
2. Next I cut the cove on the tablesaw:
3. I continued with a bull-nose bit on the router-table:
4. I then cut a rabbet on the jointer:
5. I will use a dado set at an angle to cut the angled grove out of the bottom:
Now my question is this. What would you suggest I use to smooth the transitions from the bull-nose round-overs on each edge to the cove in the middle? I was planning to use a scraper in the cove to smooth it out. Do you think it would be good to use the scraper for the transitions as well? I also had given some thought to getting a hollow plane, but not sure if it would do what I want. I don’t think the radius would be large enough.
Any suggestions on how to tackle this are welcome.
