I was reading an article in FWW magazine and for one piece the author instructed me to create a template.
I am supposed to drill a 3 1/2” hole in the template so that I can use a bushing in the router to make the hole in the final piece (drill an undersized hole and route the hole to the correct size). Then he goes on and tells me to make the curve part of the bottom of the leg using a router bit with a bearing on it.
Why would I use a bushing for a round hole and a pattern bit with a bearing on it for the curve?
How do I decide when to use each one?
