At the antique sale this morning the wife and i purchased an old well pump. She would liike me to build a small circular base for it, lets say 2’ in diameter (actual measurments not known). Now im sure that if i do my math right i can calculate the angle of each cut to make it kinda circular, but, i was curious if anyone had tried using a flute and bead bit. Would it be easier to rout the edges with the F&B bit or cut angles on the table saw? My guess is that the router bits will produce a more flexible and circular piece? Do i Glue it, Nail it or band it?
I have a much more accurate router setup than i do an accurate tablesaw.
