Anyone know of any videos online that explain how to use the Whiteside 5 Degree Negative & Positive Taper Chair Making Router Bits?

Thanks

Check with American furniture design, If I’m not mistaken those router bits were originally designed for the rocker plans they developed.

-- If the old masters had power tools, they would have used them. So get off your damn High Horse.

I wonder if these are the bits that Sam Maloof designed for his chairs…(?)

Yes they are the bits for Maloof chairs. The Maloof chairs that I build use a different method and was curious on other ways.

I’m in the process of making two Maloof Dining Chairs… from Chas. Brock…
They call for just a 1-1/2” rabbet & 3/4” roundover… no special tilts, etc.
